About

The title refers to Helena (Thurman), a young blind woman whom LA cop Berlin (Garcia) believes is next in line for a serial killer who has murdered seven similar victims. The problem is he's new to the almost rural area and no one takes him seriously. Worse still, he's fallen obsessively in love with the potential victim.

Robinson's intriguing script and highly atmospheric direction are rather indulgent at over two hours, and the moody opening is possibly the best part of the movie. Still, this was a big-picture debut for an Englishman in Hollywood.
