Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Sadly picked up by television network HBO in the States rather than a distributor, this film has never made it to the big screen. Peter Gallagher stars as a police photographer who's become immune to all horrors having taken pictures of every crime under the sun. Bored, he becomes involved in a criminal blackmail racket by taking photographs of prominent people in compromising positions. But when his unsavoury colleagues start turning up as corpses his worlds threaten to merge. With great support from Frances McDormand and John Lithgow, this is an above-average thriller with tension and punch.
