    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Offers the pleasures of a chamber drama's bravura performances from a pair of supremely accomplished pros.

    Entertainment Weekly

    Pits the two actors against each other in a ''long night of the soul'' talkathon that director Stephen Hopkins' jerky editing techniques can't quite spark into sustained life.

    Appears to be a somewhat sinister episode of "Nightline."
