An interesting movie from first-time director Douglas Day Stewart. Mickey (Barbara Williams) and Ray Davis (John Getz) are a well-to-do San Francisco couple on the town celebrating their anniversary while Scott Muller (Steven Bauer), a professional thief with a sense of style and taste, is
robbing their home. During his foray Muller comes across Mickey's personal diaries after he has noticed a painting of her on the wall. He takes the journals home with him. When Mickey discovers their loss, she is understandably worried as they reveal her innermost thoughts and sexual fantasies.
The more Muller reads her writing, the more enthralled he becomes. He tracks her down and begins to insinuate himself into her life. The picture has good performances from everyone and a great deal of suspense, much like BODY HEAT (1981) and THE JAGGED EDGE (1985). A pretty good movie that could
have taken a bit of trimming. There's no question that it's an original idea; it might have had more acceptance if the author had allowed someone else to direct it.
