Desperate Measures / Piinaavat hetket. © Mandalay Entertainment. D: Barbet Schroeder. SC: David Klass. DP: Luciano Tovoli. CAST: Michael Keaton (Peter McCabe), Andy Garcia (Frank Conner), Marcia Gay Harden (Samantha Hawkins). 100’. 1,85. MPAA 34792. Rated R = 17. Finnish / Swedish subtitles by Timo Porri / Janne Staffans. DIST: Columbia Finland. Viewed in Helsinki, VET, Wednesday 1 April 1998. *** San Francisco cop Andy Garcia can only help his terminally ill son with bone marrow transplant from psycho killer Michael Keaton. Non stop overkill of spectacular action. The title of the film is more apt than the producers might want it to be.
