Incomprehensible thriller that has stylish moments but for the most part is just too silly for words. is terrific as a psychopathic killer who is being stalked by an obsessed Ewan McGregor. First he wants to catch her, but soon finds himself falling in love with her and tries as much as he can to protect her. The studios were so embarrassed about this film that they tried to let it go unreleased, but following the box office success of Star Wars for McGregor and Double Jeopardy it seemed a good idea to put it out in theatres and hope for the best (the film took number one in its first week but quickly dwindled after that). Genevieve Bujold is excellent in a supporting role.
