The Watcher (2000) R4 Retail DVD
Crime, Mystery, Thriller
"The Watcher" is a highly stylised, slickly directed film, which, at an hour and a half seems rather short. However, what you get in that ninety minutes more than justifies the cost of the DVD. Spader and Reeves both give electrifying performances, and it is their onscreen chemistry that carries the movie.
Spader's migraine suffering, burned out, vulnerable ex FBI man Joel Campbell plays wonderfully; he gives the part a depth that would be all too easy to miss had another actor been cast. He is the basket case to Reeves' in-control killer.
Reeves, as serial killer David Allen Griffin showsmore… he can act in this film - it's a radical departure from the Neo/Ted Logan characters, and I haven't seen him in anything this good since "Permanent Record". He is the ice cold killer with an amiable side, and it works.
To be honest, the murders in this film are secondary to the intriguing relationship between killer and cop, and that's what really drives this film. Spader's brilliantly enigmatic "Yeah, I notice you," halfway through the film, in response to Reeves' leading question speak volumes about where your attention should lie. This is essentially a film about the relationship between these two characters, and it is well worth watching for the sheer screen presence of the two Hollywood heavyweights. Excellent stuff.
