Reviews
Mine: Routine thiller. Russell is striking, but the story, acting and direction never evoke any excitement. Not bad, just not good either
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Female investigator for the Justice Dept. becomes intrigued--then obsessed--by young woman who seduces, marries, and murders wealthy men. Handsome, stylishly crafted yarn, loaded with sexual tension, that stops just short of hitting the mark. Winger and Russell are both terrific. Photographed by Conrad Hall; effective music score by Michael Small. Amusing cameo by playwright David Mamet as one of Winger's poker-playing colleagues.
