About the Movie
Philip Kaufman directs the detective thriller Twisted (originally to be titled The Blackout Murders), with a script by up-and-coming filmmaker Sarah Thorp. Ashley Judd plays troubled police detective Jessica Shepard, who works under the jurisdiction of the man who raised her as his daughter, police Commissioner Mills (Samuel L. Jackson). While investigating a serial murder case, Jessica — who is has a proclivity for dangerous, drunken one-night-stands — discovers that all of the victims are men whom she's recently bedded. Complicating matters are her bitter ex-boyfriend (Mark Pellegrino), her very curious therapist (David Strathairn), and her odd-behaving new partner Mike Delmarco (Andy Garcia).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Judd is let down by Twisted because tearful, confused victim doesn't come naturally to her; she's not fun to watch suffer if you can't see her calculating the payback.
Rotten: A suspense thriller without thrills or suspense.
Rotten: It's sad to see the director of The Right Stuff and The Unbearable Lightness of Being reduced to this.
Rotten: It begins pretty, and ends up ugly.
I love Ashley and can never think bad of her but in this case, the script was bad along with the story. It had the essence of a great film but it just didn't work. It had the sex, the violence, and the cast but the story flopped in my opinion.
