If you’re into action movies, or expect Robin Williams to be in any way funny, then please give this one a miss. If however you like serious movies and aren’t ignorant/homophobic, this is a thriller well worth watching in the dark.

This film focuses on Gabriel Noone (Robin Williams), a storyteller with a national late-night radio show, who is suffering from writers block. Trying ... read more

It is a rather obscure flick so I wasn’t really sure what to expect from it but since I have a weak spot for Robin Williams , I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, I must admit that I was at first really surprised by the damned thing. Indeed, for most of the movie, I thought it was actually quite spellbinding to behold.

Gabriel Noone (Robin Williams) is a storyteller with his own national late-night radio show. Trying to provide the spark Gabriel needs to cure his writers block, his literary agent provides him with a manuscript that will be published shortly. Its not easy reading, the manuscript is a detailed account of the prolonged sexual abuse a young boy suffered at the hands of his own parents and their friends. Wanting to know more Gabriel develops a friendly phone relationship with the fourteen-year-old boy now suffering from AIDs, but all is not what it seems.

" LAST WATCHED: 11/26/2016COMMENTS: What a change in pace for Robin Williams. I've grown so used to seeing him in comedies that this suspense/thriller movie took me by surprise (I do know that he has acted in several dramas, thrillers, and even a horror movie or two...I just haven't seen any of them). I think he filled this dramatic role quite well. GRADESACTING: BSTORY/PLOT: BSOUNDTRACK: ASET/COSTUME DESIGN: BENTERTAINMENT: BFAVESCHARACTER: JessSCENE/MOMENT: N/OQUOTE: N/O"
