This is a nice example of the Thriller Genre and what can be accomplished with some excellent talent.
Douglas and stone both give great performances in this film, and their script also gets high marks. My only complaint is they went WAY overboard on the nudity. Come on people, this story and the performances are strong enough to stand on its own without trying to get into soft porn, and the scenes with Stone and Douglas didn't need the punctuation of nudity, we could have seen half as much boobs and still had a great movie.
Well done in general, though the villain could have been made a little more scary, they have some good points where they talk about how psycho the killer is, but it seems to be glossed over from the psychiatric standpoint, it seems to me that if they cut a minute of boobs and added a flashback to the profile discussion this movie might have had a bigger punch.
