Curious Cinema Cuestion, Can Cats Copy?? May 28, 2010
GENRE: Dramatic/ Detective/serial killer thriller
CAST: Holly Hunter, Sigourney Weaver, Dermot Mulroney, William McNamara, Will Patton and Harry Connick, Jr.
PLOT: A psychopath thinks he can gain reknown by killing a writer of analysis of serial murderers. He is thwarted but orchestrates continual attempts to succeed where he failed. The Detectives seem to be one step behind all the way, until the end when...
RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 9,3 of 10; Most of the way we know who's doing it, yet we still are fooled and frightened by wise and well executed cinematographic techniques and tricks of the trade to maintain our interest in the tale. The two lead actresses each turned in oscar worthy performances, but those don't go to police stories anymore and I think the Producers failed to proffer them as nominees (unverified suposition)
DVD BONUS: Overdubbed commentary by the director, Jon Amiel; Production notes; and, a theatrical trailer.
ADDED NOTES: We need to break Connick's killer character out of jail to see some more of the manson type maniac at work. He too should have been nominated for his presentation of the warped minded killer/cult leader.
