You thought brawny Bruce Willis couldn't play a brainy psychologist? You were right. Full Review
Christian Science Monitor
Rating: 2.5/4 -- It's far from the disaster it's said to have been, but it's also not much to write home about, either. Full Review
Rating: 2.5/4 -- It's a psycho-erotic thriller with more twists and shocks than the rattlesnake which, at one point, leaps out at star Bruce Willis-from a location we won't describe. (It would spoil one of the several dozen surprises.) Full Review
Rating: 1.5/4 -- Mundane sex scenes, a standard L.A. car chase and Bakula's outrageously gory death scene (which plays like an unintentional parody) are all part of the predictable script. Full Review
A clear contender for Turkey of the Year made even more risible by much pretentious psychobabble. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- The director, and a few of the performers, make every effort to play against the material, hoping it will somehow emerge as sophisticated camp, but their efforts are futile. Full Review
Color of Night and North represent the nadir of Willis' plummeting film career. He can be a most engaging talent; his script selection of late has been awful. Full Review
A New York psychologist goes to California to get over a patient's suicide, only to have an L.A. colleague murdered. While conducting his own investigation into the killing he crosses paths with a gorgeous young woman and finds himself targeted by a mysterious killer. This director's cut video contains fifteen minutes of erotic footage not seen in the theatrical release.
When one of psychologist Bill Capa's patients loses control, he's so overcome with guilt that he must leave the Big Apple. He moves to sunny California to live with Dr. Moore, a colleague with whom he shares an ostentatious Malibu home equipped with a pool and a Mercedes. But when Moore is murdered, Capa's got to solve the crime by interviewing loonies, especially beautiful, manipulative and neurotic women, similar to those he'd abandoned in Manhattan.
