Keep the Abwesenheitsnotizen coming! In case you're anwesend though, welcome
back to our series "Pirate Cinema's Top 3 Hollywood Movies of the 1990s" (*). 
Our #2 was so successful that it spawned an entire franchise of horror movies, 
but we like it most as a detective story. At the time, the marketing focused 
almost exclusively on the male lead, a deranged criminal mastermind, but it was 
his antagonist, a young law enforcement officer, who made this film special. 
She learns how to survive in a highly adversarial environment dominated by 
predatory sexuality, and even though her personal life takes a back seat for 
most of the film, every 21st century lesbian movie cop is deeply indebted to 
her. Beyond that, this is a movie with an unusually sharp sense for suspense 
and surprises. There's another same-era film that is famous for obliterating 
more than 90 minutes of exposé in a closing sequence of less than 90 seconds, 
but this one tops it when it achieves one of its major plot twists by means of 
what is probably the single best cut that anyone in Hollywood made in the 1990s.

(*) excluding the usual suspects: nothing by Martin Scorsese or David Lynch,
    obviously no Quentin Tarantino, and no film we have ever screened before,
    which rules out Heat, Point Break, Showgirls, Bound and Twelve Monkeys.
