A cop takes desperate measures to protect her identity in this urban thriller. Monica (Claire Forlani) is a police detective who has been sent undercover to crack open a drug-dealing operation run by Gale (Pete Postlethwaite). However, maintaining her cover has taken a heavy toll on Monica -- she's become romantically involved with Gale, and is now addicted to heroin. To make matters all the more dangerous for her, Monica has also been having a relationship with Denny (Henry Czerny), Gale's second in command. Denny lives in the same apartment building as an elderly woman named May (Lauren Bacall); Denny and May often get each other's mail, and as a result occasionally pass misdirected letters back and forth. When Denny is found dead, Monica begins to suspect that May might have a package from Denny that could blow her cover and reveal her true identity to Gale; desperate to find out how much May knows and what she could prove, Monica takes her hostage, but neither is sure what Monica will do when her need for heroin takes hold. Produced under the title The Limit, Gone Dark was the first directorial effort from producer and assistant director Lewin Webb. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Claire, the critic by talltale June 2, 2004 - 9:24 AM PDT

One of the "treats" of the GONE DARK dvd is the interview with star Claire Forlani, in which she says that this movie has no real point: It's just a slice-of-life. If Claire ever needs a second career, she can become a critic. She's absolutely right about the film: there is nothing wrong with it: well-written, well-acted, and well-directed but offering nothing really new or particularly interesting. The film is simply not necessary--except perhaps as a stepping stone in director Lewin Webb's career. We watched it for the cast: Lauren Bacall (who, managing to resist her usual impulse toward boredom, actually acts!), Henry Czerny, Pete Postlethwaite and the aforementioned Forlani. We were entertained, and the movie's short (something like 80 minutes), so at least you will not have wasted TOO much time....
