WITNESSING THE PERFECT CRIME MADE HIM THE PERFECT TARGET.
Jason Kemp (Christopher Reeve), a paralyzed architect, spends his nights spying on the apartment building across the yard and suddenly thinks he saw a murder… A few years after the tragedy that left Reeves paralyzed, he found the capacity to star in this TV movie, but rarely is remaking Hitchcock a good idea. This is no match to the 1954 classic. A few changes have been made – there is a feeling of realism in the portrayal of the architect’s new life and the modern times call for the introduction of computers and e-mail to the story. It’s a decent enough TV mystery and watching Reeves is quite inspiring.
1998-U.S. Made for TV. 89 min. Color. Directed by Jeff Bleckner. Cast: Christopher Reeve (Jason Kemp), Daryl Hannah (Claudia Henderson), Robert Forster (Charlie Moore), Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Anne Twomey, John Rothman.
