Elias Koteas plays an insurance adjuster who ingratiates himself into the lives of the people he is investigating (mostly that just means is that he sleeps with them, men and women alike). Director Atom Egoyan has put together a flat and pretentious examination of a complicated man, a character Koteas plays really well despite the film’s shortcomings. Arsinée Khanjian also stars as a pornography censor who obsessively records all the film footage she watches in order to share it with her overly devoted sister at home.
