Film #40: What Lies Beneath (2000)

Plot - This film tries to be clever by using non-linear tactics, but it only serves to highlight the crappy story.

Form - Thriller crap, although everything gets pretty exciting in the final twenty minute stretch. Check out those gratuitously long bath tub and chase sequences.

F/X - Awful CG ghosts.

Acting - Harrison Ford obviously isn't enjoying himself, although Ms. Pfeiffer probably is a crazy person in real life.

Mise en scene - Everything's either dull looking or all the lights are turned off.

Quotables - No.

Cool stuff - There's nothing cool about spousal abuse, whether it's in Michelle Pfeiffer's head or actually happening to Michelle Pfeiffer.
