Reviews
Mine: Very well done thriller. A Hitchcockian movie about a good juy caught in events beyond his control. Very well written and acted. A must see.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Naive young man, who's developed a secret and highly valuable program for a high-tech company, is concerned that he won't be properly compensated and thus is easy prey for those who would steal the secret. Too easy, if you ask us, and that's the problem with this ice-cold but intriguing Mamet screenplay: we didn't buy it at crucial points in its serpentine story. Scott and Martin are excellent; leading lady Pidgeon is Mrs. Mamet.
