Le dénommé Michael Faraday, professeur d'histoire à l'université, spécialisé dans l'étude des groupuscules extrémistes de droite, commence à ressentir quelques soupçons quant à la possibilité d'un prochain attentat, fomenté par des vagues connaissances du voisinage ..... Bof !
This film is steeped in paranoia and fear, but I never felt the menace or danger that I should've felt. People seem to lose their minds over the "twist" ending here, but I found it to be pretty predictable. The whole movie is middle-of-the-road thriller fare and I've seen movies that have handled paranoia way better - see Safe, Bug or Take Shelter.
One of the best thrillers of the 90´s. The script and direction keeps things taut and tense and lets the paranoia seep in with glacial purpose. When the distrust and fear is in full effect there is no stopping the narrative. And the ending is a doozy you won´t forget soon. Bridges and Robbins bring their A-game and Joan Cusack gives a stand out performance. A thrilling and chilling movie you have to see!
Nearly perfect, but they didn't fuck it up so bad that it ain't a wild ride! Jeff Bridges, Tim Robbins, and Joan Cusack all in some of their best performances; can't beat it; and you can't beat the edge-of-seat suspense starting in the third quarter and throughout. Damn suspenseful, original, and intriguing story.
