Synopsis: Stan is a quiet, solitary detective in New York City. A few months ago, he solved a gruesome case of serial murders, although an undercover police officer lost her life. A new set of similar murders begins: the bodies are elaborately displayed and the killer uses equipment from art and early movie making in the tableau, or he leaves a clue as to where the investigators are to stand to get the full artistic effect. Stan is paired with a younger detective, Carl, whom he brushes off when Carl wants to get to know him. As pieces fall in place, it's a race to prevent the next killing, quite possibly someone close to Stan.

thought wouln't be accepting

my blood right now.

No, you'd estrange yourself

out of it sooner or later.

- Can I pick who it goes to?

- No.

It's my blood.

That is the trouble with transfusions.

You have to replace like with like.

It's not true.

If you are old

you can give to anybody.

You know Crystal was old.

When I used to see her

they had to be...

because she'd give it up

for anybody.

She give it up for you?

Did she say something?

I don't know, between dates, yeah.

You have a lot of time

to get to know someone.

I knew things from it

that nobody else knew.

She had this birthmark...

under his left arm.

She always used to say that no matter

how many guys she was with,

no man would ever find her

Think about it too


Let's go to somewhere

away from here.

Above ground, maybe

Like hiking

I'm going with some friends

this weekend.

You could come.

I'd love to

but I got to work.

- Shocking.

- Another time.


Probably not.

I got to go.

Looks like an egg.

Sometimes a circle

is just a circle, chief

Building management got back

to us this morning.

The hanging man was

identified as Martin Calderon.

Works as a day trader,

never left his apartment.

I thought that you might want to take

a look at the report Carl put together.

He was up all night.

It's a theory it was a ritual killing,

some kind of a copycat

imitating Uncle Eddie.

No, this is different.

It's less spontaneous.

It don't seem so different to me.

Look, hard as the Uncle Eddie case was

you're still a detective

I'd appreciate it if you'd give

this one your full attention.

I'll will

Thank you.

Based on decomposition of the body,

victim's been dead

at least a week.

- Now, the cause of death.

- Hanging by your f... ankles.

But he was probably dead

Henry Miller

Henry Valentine Miller (December 26, 1891 – June 7, 1980) was an American writer, expatriated in Paris at his flourishing. He was known for breaking with existing literary forms and developing a new type of semi-autobiographical novel that blended character study, social criticism, philosophical reflection, stream of consciousness, explicit language, sex, surrealist free association, and mysticism. His most characteristic works of this kind are Tropic of Cancer, Black Spring, Tropic of Capricorn and The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy, which are based on his experiences in New York and Paris (all of which were banned in the United States until 1961). He also wrote travel memoirs and literary criticism, and painted watercolors. more…
