Okay-ish thriller-drama. Plot setup was good but it just seems to drift from a point. Ending is a bit trite and quite predictable. Surprising, as the movie is written-directed by Paul Schrader, who wrote Taxi Driver and Raging Bull for Martin Scorsese. Maybe he shouldn’t direct… (though Affliction was great and Cat People was decent).
Performances are OK. This was Richard Gere’s breakthrough role.
