Los Angeles cartoonist C.C. Drood (Tom Hulce) should have known better than to pursue an affair with gorgeous high-end call girl Yolanda Caldwell (Virginia Madsen). The kicks ended the day she turned up dead in his home...and now, the desperate draftsman has to stay a step ahead of corrupt cops in a tense race to prove his innocence. Wayne Wang's flashy, foreboding "New Wave noir" co-stars Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Harry Dean Stanton, Adam Ant, John Doe, Millie Perkins. 92 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; theatrical trailer.
