Femme Fatale
2002
***½
Director: Brian De Palma
Cast: Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, Antonio Banderas, Peter Coyote, Eric Ebouaney

Brian De Palma is firing on all cylinders again. There are some wonderfully exciting suspense set pieces in this story of a fiendish female thief who must return to Paris seven years after she betrayed her associates and fled the country. The complex story sinks its claws in you and keeps you second-guessing what to believe and what not to believe, but the pay-off is ultimately a cop-out.
