See if you can guess this great ending!
25 January 2000 | by bek-12See all my reviews

I just read a review that said, basically, that this movie had too many questions. Don't get the wrong idea by reading reviews (even mine--we're all biased): this movie means to keep you guessing. Don't worry--it doesn't leave you confused at the end. It wraps everything up tidily, and ends in a believable fashion, but all through the movie, you never know who is really the bad guy. This is an intelligent, highly underrated movie. It's one of my favorites.
