Thriller
A successful psychiatrist gets his perfect world of Thanksgiving Day parades and crayon-colored rainbows turned upside down when his daughter is kidnapped by relentless thieves for a six-digit figure buried deep in the mind of a severely traumatized young woman. Michael Douglas plays the shrink who must race the clock and delve into the mental patient's pathology in order to retrieve the number that leads to a $10 million ruby. Mixed into this adaptation of Andrew Klavan's novel is a wife laid up with broken bones (Famke Janssen), a string of violent homicides, a botched bank robbery and a headstrong cop (Jennifer Esposito) who seems to be in a different movie altogether. Director Gary Fleder presents an aesthetically pleasing film with convincing performances, but his overly ambitious attempt to harmonize several compelling subplots into one comprehensive piece creates a traffic jam reminiscent of the intersection of Grant and Campbell during rush hour.
Director: Gary Fleder
Cast: Michael Douglas, Lorli Villanueva, Britany Murphy, Famke Janssen and Sean Bean
