Based on a trashy novel by James Hadley Chase it’s therefore surprising to discover Volker Schlondorff directing; kind of like finding Seth Rogen in a Terence Malick film. Only the clothes and cars have been updated so the story and characters appear absurd, the risk you run when messing with film noir. More shock news: Woody Harrelson is no Robert Mitchum, nor is Elizabeth Shue the new Gloria Grahame. Body Heat did neo-noir right, this is pathetic.

This film fairly oozes sexuality at every turn. It's too bad the convoluted plot can't match that feeling. There are so many double-crosses, red herrings and false trails even after it's over you won't know what happened. It's hot though.
