Smitten with TV reporter Tony Sokolow (Sigourney Weaver), unassuming janitor Daryll Deever (William Hurt) intimates that he knows more than he's telling when the journalist shows up at his workplace to cover a murder. Her interest piqued, Tony pursues him to get the scoop, and they join forces (in more ways than one) to investigate the killing. Meanwhile, they're in the culprits' crosshairs in this atmospheric thriller from director Peter Yates.
Netflix Rating: 3.1
Top Rotten Tomatoes Critics
The story gets more and more strained before it's resolved.
Every scene develops characters. And they're developed in such offbeat fidelity to the way people do behave that we get all the more involved in the mystery, just because, for once, we halfway believe it could really be happening.
