Interesting how one person can say something with such drama (emotion) and another person will believe it. Julie is an excellent example of how to manage and control emotions. Since emotions are fleeting and, albeit, useless, I think the film does a great job of depicting this exact truism!

Enjoy the film, the acting, the lies and the outcome, so the plot is okay with the twists and turns, but I wouldn't watch it again for a long while. Thankfully, the Stiles character plays the players, and admits to the opulence of the rooms, letting us in on a corporate decadence we imagine as a standard for the times, while playing the rape card so prevalent in our modern political scandals. So even though it is released in 2001, it is current events and rides with our 2017 collective unconsciousness.

Unrealistic film about two corporate women. I had this one figured out VERY early on. If you decide to watch this just keep in mind one thing ...women lie. I don't want to spoil the entire story but if you keep that in mind you'll have the plot figured out pretty quickly.

A brilliant script will entertain and keep you guessing until the end about what is really happening in this strange twisted thriller of two corporate women.
