Has anyone else seen this? I could see it being of interest to those on the Ecumenical Jury, as it's the most Dostevskian film I've seen in a while, embodying the famous Karamazov line about "if no God, then everything is permitted." A couple of times during the film, the main criminal is heard to say "nobody is watching" (or something like that) as everything goes to shit around Nicole Kidman's undercover FBI agent. Besides that, it's probably the best suspense film I've seen this film, a genre that generally bores me. Kidman's performance is splendid, and she's almost unrecognizable in her 'present day' makeup - she looks convincingly wrecked, like many a late-stage alcoholic I've treated. And Bradley Whitford is fun as usual - how his typecasting has changed from his days playing idealistic Josh on The West Wing, now playing characters for whom the word smarmy seems to have been invented.
