I loved the motifs: the lighthouse, the promise of love, the chance that love and truth above all can undo the damage, the remorseless nature of damage being done and perpetuated.She has a medical condition that becomes apparent when she drinks. The two leads, Gere and Basinger, do a solid but routine job in their roles; it's the secondary characters who give this film a life of its own: Eric Roberts (an outstanding performance) as the edgy husband, Uma Thurman as the patient (whose character is the only one who remains an enigma right to the end), the detective who keeps making insinuations, Gere's colleague who gets panicky when he has to testify, etc.One night she drinks anyway and attacks her husband. If nothing else, Joanou shows a talent for allowing his actors to do their stuff.The Tomatometer score — based on the opinions of hundreds of film and television critics — is a trusted measurement of critical recommendation for millions of fans.It represents the percentage of professional critic reviews that are positive for a given film or television show.

She plays a very complex character here and there's not a single scene where she's not mesmerizing...Seriously folks has their been a more charming lead than the good Buddhist Richard Gere, after Brando, and maybe coming close to him Mickey Roorke and Johny Depp. Kimmie is just fantastic here, the tone of her voice, the understated performance, she oozes charm with a mere glance. An all too brief nod -for no other reason than brevity for this review- to Uma and the rest of the cast, I ll just say that the scenes with Uma on the couch have such a suspenseful and seductive mood, the way she phrases her dream and looks at the shrink, Uma another natural talent.To pass judgment on the film on such grounds is like saying that Dumbo is not supposed to fly because elephants don't.PLEASE, IMDb, take this review off the front page,it's insulting. on with the review: THIS IS A GREAT NEO NOIR FILM, ACTUALLY IT' S PROBABLY THE BEST NEO NOIR AND ONE OF THE BEST CRIME/SUSPENSE/LOVE DRAMA FILMS I VE WATCHED. The plot is intelligent, it has plenty of twists, and surprisingly very few holes in it (that ANY neo noir or crime thriller for that matter even David Mammet is going to have).
