Product Description

For her newest sculpture artist Lily has an unusual idea: During the exhibit she wants to play anonymous apologies. She sets up an answering machine on a special phone line and publicly invites people to call. But soon she gets more dramatic calls than expected: she attracts a psychopath serial killer who uses her project to confess and announce his crimes. At first she doesn't believe he's authentic, but Detective Hungate urges her to give the tapes to analysis. Since both Hungate and the killer seem to develop a crush on her, it quickly becomes personal...

HASH(0x9909f3c0) out of 5 stars who says sorry seems to be the hardest word?! 29 Dec. 2000
By Peter Shelley - Published on
This thriller benefits from strong direction by Robert Bierman and a top music score by Maurice Jarre. It's rare to find a score attached to this genre that isn't exploitative or overdone, and Jarre is an unusual choice which pays off, though adding lyrics to his theme and having it sung over the credits is a definite mistake. Apology is the name of conceptual artist Lesley Ann Warren's latest project, a phone service she has created to complement her latest "piece". It's basically an answering machine which you can project your guilt onto, but considering this is New York, it's not long before apology means confession and absolution to a nutter, and LAW becomes a woman in peril. Thank goodness she meets Peter Weller as a cop. Weller is such a steadfast presence that it's hard to believe him being psychoneurotic, which he is initially accused of. Warren is more the psychoneurotic type, but then she's an artist. You can guess that writer Mark Medoff doesn't miss any cliches with her conceptual artist role - she is styled badly, has lost custody of her child, and has an attitude. LAW has never been a strong performer. Perhaps only someone like Alan Rudolph in the way he presented her in Choose Me, knows how to overcome her flakiness. Here she is lit unflatteringly, her character is charmless (even given her predicament), and she seems to climax as soon as Weller touches her. Even her Apology project is lousy, where she plans to play the taped confessions, while her audience is trapped in a contraption the size of a train carriage. It doesn't occur to her that she hasn't told the apologisers how their confessions will be used, but then that's her life lesson. Medoff also throws in a sub plot about a serial gay killer (known affectionately in the force as the "schlong biter"), then quickly abandons it. While some late slo-mo sequences are a bit too cute, Bierman builds the chase with cross-cutting, but doesn't really give us a satisfactory conclusion. John Glover and Harvey Fierstein appear to little effect, and Chris Noth can be seen in an early small role.

HASH(0x982d996c) out of 5 stars very interesting 21 April 2010

Verified Purchase
every so often, you hear about a film, that you just want to see.
and every so often, said film, has a cast of well known performers, the funny thing is, that most time, the film you want to see is no
longer available on a well known medium.
APOLOGY is just that film. the cast was well known, the stroy line banal. but it just had to be seen.

HASH(0x984dc03c) out of 5 stars Apology [VHS] 26 May 2012

Always enjoyed the movie, especially the music. Unfortunately, the movie never was recorded on a CD media for duplication of the music. This VHS was my only resource to do so.

HASH(0x984e3b94) out of 5 stars FOR ALL LESLEY-ANN WARREN FANS 22 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This is one of Lesley's best films ever. Her character is enjoyable to watch and better developed than other roles you may have seen her in. If you are a Lesley-Ann Warren fan, here is one to get.
