One of my favorite thrillers. I've seen it twice and enjoyed it the 2nd time too even though I knew what happens. Great re-make of Hitchcock's DIAL M FOR MURDER.

Money, sex, deceit, betrayal!

“Here’s to stolen moments”

A ruthless Wall Street businessman Steven Taylor (Michael Douglas) finds out that his gorgeous much younger wealthy wife Emily (Gwyneth Paltrow) is having an affair with a penniless painter who also happens to be an ex-con David Shaw (Viggo Mortensen). Instead of trying to get even with the artist, Douglas hires him to murder Paltrow for a half million dollars! And he accepts!! It looks like a perfect murder, but it`s not, because it fails.
A real good start that leaves the mind buzzing! Will he do it? Is it a part of a deeper scam? Is Paltrow in on it? I must admit that it kept me watching and constantly being caught off-guard for the next surprise.

This film keeps you at the edge of your seat and Douglas' portrayal of a heartless blackmailer is chillin...
