Without a doubt one of the most thrilling, stylish and edge of the seat films I've ever seen. It's one of Quentin Tarantino's favorites and I can definitely see why as not a moment is wasted in this exciting film. Travolta plays a man who is the sound guy for horror films who just happens to record an accident. A car plunges into the water and he rushes to save a beautiful young girl (Nancy Allen), but folks seem to want to cover up the fact that she was in the car. In fact the man in the car that died was a Presidential hopeful, and the plot thickens. It gets so thick and twisted that you can't help but hang on to every word and clue until this magnificant film unwinds. The cinematography is impressive, the soundtrack is perfection...everything here is absolutely right. This is everything one could hope for and then some, truly gripping and awesome in every way possible, see this right away and don't think twice, it's brilliant!
