Summary: Started off decent, ended weakly
For the names they had in this movie (Jodie Foster, Forrest Whitaker), you'd think this would be a better movie. But it runs out of gas near the end, and the ending just kind of falls apart. Plus it doesn't help any that the director seems to have gotten his idea of pacing from 2001: A Space Odyssey-- except that he forgot to play classical music during the longgggggggg pauses in dialogue. Cut down to an 80min movie, and with a different ending, this could be a good movie.
