Now, she's got him where she wants him and there's no stopping her. With a compelling performance by Tom Berenger, this high crime drama of murder, corruption, greed, hookers and kinky sex clubs overflows with violent twists and unexpected turns in a world of frightening darkness.

In, 1948 Los Angeles detective Robert Duvall is assigned to investigate the death of a priest, who apparently suffered a heart attack while being serviced by a prostitute. Meanwhile, Duvall's brother, young Catholic monsignor Robert DeNiro, is reluctantly currying favor with crooked contractor Charles Durning, the better to finance an expansion of DeNiro's church. The unifying factor between Duvall and DeNiro, beyond their sibling relationship, turns out to be the grisly murder of a hooker. The key words in the labyrinthine proceedings are Power, Ambition, and Hypocrisy. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Venice Film Festival, ...True Confessions (UK)
