Unintentionally uproarious psycho-thriller with Andie MacDowell Discuss this article
Three rising stars of 1989 hit career rock-bottom in director Jonathan Mossek’s unintentionally uproarious psycho-thriller, in which an NYC photojournalist (Elwes) is kidnapped by avenging white supremacists. There’s some camp pleasure in watching Frank Whaley and Andie MacDowell – possibly the least threatening humans in history – sport neck tattoos and menace a bloated Elwes. But it’s hardly worth slogging through the unexplained bondage and a so-bombastic-it-seems-sarcastic score, only to be rewarded with a plea for tolerance that’s both insincere and inept.
