    Clint Eastwood plays a New Orleans detective determined to track down a serial killer of prostitutes. Complicating matters is the fact that the unknown culprit is very likely an S&M fetishist....and so is Eastwood. The detective is profoundly disturbed at the likelihood that he and the killer have the same taste in women; this element of the case is equally troublesome for psychologist Genevieve Bujold, who finds herself attracted to Eastwood. The climax involves the killer's attempting to throw Eastwood off the track by kidnapping one of the detective's two daughters (played quite well by Clint's real-life daughter Alison). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      wonderfully contemporary film noir


      Clint plays a detective who has more in common with James Stewart in Vertigo than Dirty Harry. His Wes Block, a devoted divorced father with an unsavory appetite for the New Orleans night life, finds that he has perhaps too much in common with the murderer he's tracking. Genevieve Bujold also shines as the psychiatrist who forms an unlikely but convincing bond with Block, as does Clint's daughter Alison Eastwood as Block's oldest daughter.

      Clint Eastwood is my favorite actor so I like all his films. This is a very good detective story, it gets very suspenseful at times.
