Shattered Image

R, 102 min. Directed by Raul Ruiz. Starring Anne Parillaud, William Baldwin, Bulle Ogier.

Not reviewed at press time. Daring narrative experimentation is cult auteur Raul Ruiz's forte, and this new murder mystery should be no different. A wealthy young heiress on an island honeymoon (Anne Parillaud of La Femme Nikita) and an assassin for hire (Baldwin) seem only to exist in each other's dreams. Who's zooming who? What the recklessly experimental cult auteur Ruiz is doing making a suspense thriller is anyone's guess. And moreover, what's he doing casting a Baldwin brother? More experimentation, we hope.
