JUDAS KISS (1998 U.S.) D/W: SEBASTIAN GUTIERREZ W: DEANA FULLER P: BEAU FLYNN/STEFAN SIMCHOWITZ/JONATHAN KING
Minor league criminals decide to hit the jackpot by kidnapping a reknowned computer company official and holding him for ransom. Of course this New Orleans set crime tale is just another variation on the robbery/heist/kidnapping gone wrong story that`s been told a hundred timed before, but it`s a good one with interesting characters, style and a few surprises. Carla Gugino stars (and co-produced) as the sexy woman who comes up with the idea, and Alan Rickman (cop) and Emma Thompson (fed) have a bad southern drawl competition. Also check out Philp Baker Hall`s brief but memorable turn as a Priest turned gangster. With Hal Holbrook, Roscoe Lee Brown, Lisa Eichorn, Gil Bellows, Til Schweiger, Joey Slotnick, Richard Riehle, Greg Wise, Beverly Hotsprings, Jack Conley and William Lucking.
