how blind their hearts!"

This movie rated as best picture on the Ebert and Siskel for 1987
me too!

If someone tells you they aren't worthy of trust - and yet you see fit to take a chance with such a person as that - whose fault is it really- "if you get took"! That's the question Joe Mantegna asks in this movie as articulated in the 1080p interview we have here included for you as a "program  extra" from the Criterion version Blu-ray disc just released.

This is a truly great movie to see. Lindsay Crouse is a gentle soul who is taken for a bit of a ride by characters who are in fact alienated from  her Christianly spirit in the movie as scripted. She may seem tough on  the exterior at times, however she should hardly be taken advantage  of, I believe.

I also am convinced that the character played by Joe Mantegna
 could be won over to actually protect her spirit in the future rather  than being a menace as he is cast to be in the movie as scripted as  I say.  He clearly says in the Interview clip included for you, that it isn't a character that does him justice even if he is able to play it.

There are twists and turns which will astound you and the suspense
is captivating and thrilling. It really is a movie worth seeing and
owning in your personal library, worthy of a cult following even.

If psychological drama and suspense is your thing, and you enjoy an
intelligent uptake on it, grab this one now that we have the blu-ray especially
