Summary
Jack is a movie sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination. He enlists the help of Sally, a possible eyewitness to the crime who may be in danger herself, to uncover the truth. With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early-1980s Philadelphia, this is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on the act of movie making
