Web of woeful police work .........
7 December 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Although the entire story hinges on deciding whether an unstable woman was murdered or committed suicide and made it look like she was murdered, little attention is paid to details of her demise. Instead the deceased's deadly infatuation with forensic psychiatrist, Powers Boothe, is played for maximum relationship melodrama. His marriage being on the rocks takes center stage, while criminally inept police work is left unchallenged. In the end, and especially with the ending, one comes away with a feeling that everything that precedes the ridiculous conclusion is simply convoluted nonsense. .............. MERK
