| Doesn't pass the sniff test
An artist (Foster) witnesses a Mafia hit and calls the police. At the police station she realizes that the Mafia has a man in the force, so she runs. Trailed by the police, who need her testimony, and a hit-man (Hopper) hired by the Mafia, she goes to Mexico, where eventually she meets the hit man, who has become infatuated after studying her art and life to prepare for the hit.

Cast of characters in walk ons can't save this horribly flawed film. Jody Foster is way too muscular to be parading around half naked through much of the movie and she isn't really good at acting scared either. And I never thought Hopper was a good actor. He's dismal in this one, pretending to be a killer by putting on a fake accent.

It's directed well and very arty, but the story is so poorly written not one scene is believable.
