Surveillance

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Drama; Starring: Julia Ormond, Bill Pullman; Director: Jennifer Chambers Lynch; Author: Jennifer Chambers Lynch, Kent Harper; Runtime (in minutes): 97; MPAA Rating: R

In her debut feature, Boxing Helena (1993), director Jennifer Lynch tried way too hard to follow in the deep blue surrealist footsteps of her father, David Lynch. But she finds her own voice in Surveillance, a grubby, disturbing serial-killer mystery, a kind of blood-simple Rashomon. The events leading up to a gruesome highway murder are related by three witnesses: a druggie joyrider (Pell James), a young girl (Ryan Simpkins), and a cop (Kent Harper) who torments folks for sport. He may be sick, but FBI partners Bill Pullman and Julia Ormond show you the really dark side of the law. (Also available on cable via on demand) B+
