Psychic thriller concerning a clairvoyant named Claire whose precognitive dreams of a series of child murders develop into a telepathic correspondence with the killer. The basically trashy material is spruced up with fairy-tale allusions (Claire is the illustrator of a children's book entitled Grimm's Fairy Tales -- yes, singular Grimm), water imagery, color symbolism, a fruit motif, illusion-reality confusion, and a totally dedicated performance by Annette Bening. (The director is Neil Jordan, of The Company of Wolves, The Crying Game, The Butcher Boy, et al., and where he goes, pretension follows.) Robert Downey, Jr., shows up late in the part of the killer, and drags the movie down to its baser nature. With Aidan Quinn and Stephen Rea. (1999) — Duncan Shepherd
