I liked this movie. Having said that, I found it quite a curious and dark movie shot in a trashy-type neighborhood. I think the characters did a good job displaying the type of people you might find living there. Keeping it real, it was a bit depressing. The murders seemed almost second place to the feelings of the characters. There was a bit of gratuitus sex that I think was needed for the development of the characters. I gave it an almost 4 rating.

Meg Ryan acting like she is high in real life not just in character and trying to prove she isn't just a "girl next door" type. Total failure in this role. Lots of sex scenes but not much else.

I actually saw this film twice, but not intentionally. The second time I was staying with a friend and he had rented it so I sat through it, which was not easy. Visually, it looks great. This is what NYC looks like. But the plot is turgid and weighed down by dime-store eroticism. There might be a triumphant feminist message here; if so, I missed it. Disappointing coming from a director whose films include THE PIANO, PORTRAIT OF A LADY, HOLY SMOKE! and the tremendous BRIGHT STAR. I suppose even an auteur such as Jane Campion can fire off a dud.

An alright murder mystery which is somewhat predictable.
