In this inventive, stylish and gripping thriller, tough detective Holly Hunter teams up with agoraphobic criminal psychologist Sigourney Weaver to hunt down a serial killer who duplicates the crimes of his most notorious predecessors. Thanks to the unbearable suspense created by Jon Amiel's imaginative direction - the bathroom-set climax is a crackerjack shocker - the super-smart script and the confident performances of the two stellar leads, this mimic murder mystery gives the same year's Se7en a run for its money.
