CastEwan McGregor Ashley Judd K.D. Lang
NotesA woman (Judd) goes around picking up men and killing them. McGregor plays a British secret service agent who follows her about beyond the call of duty. K.D. Lang is his handler. The woman picks a blind guy, Alex, at an air terminal and he appears destined for the chop. But she stays with the blind guy who is very rich and asks him to marry her "because you can't see who I really am." As they drive away to get married McGregor shoots at car causing it to crash and Alex is killed. The significance of the blind guy is lost in the shallowness of the story. This is a rather weird film with some odd and old fashioned spying equipment. And it is further complicated by the appearances of McGregor's daughter, visible only to him. The story is eliptically told and the director keeps the perspective unbalanced so we often not sure what we are seeing. For me the film was watchable because of the two main leads plus the nice cameo from Lang.
