  • Clint Eastwood stars in this psychological thriller about a divorced New Orleans homicide detective whose use of handcuffs extends beyond the line of duty. Wes Block is a good father to his two young daughters, but since his wife left him he has turned to prostitutes with whom he indulges his growing taste for S&M and other kinky sexual practices. When he is assigned to a case involving the brutal slayings of a series of prostitutes and sex workers in New Orleans' red light district, Wes finds his personal and professional life merging in an increasingly disturbing manner.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A suspenseful, involving detective drama with one of the screen's most durable tough-guy heroes, doing what he does best and still managing to show something new."

    "...[The] action is well-handled, as Tuggle demonstrates ample storytelling talent and draws a multitude of nuances from his cast..."

    "...A modestly enjoyable policier and also the most daringly underlit Eastwood film ever made..."
    Film Comment
