Bare Witness

Synopsis: Professional killer Gav Reed commits a grave mistake allowing himself to be videotaped (as she always does, for a documentary she hopes to sell to Hollywood about the real nocturnal 'eldest business' there) by Julie Spencer, one of Max 'Slim' Reuter's hookers and porn actresses, whom he had sex with before - and while making a most incriminating call about his murder attempt at a high society campaign party for mayor Garland's electoral challenger Mary Washington, where the bullet is however caught by councilor Frank Constantine, who also survives. Gav's client, businessman Ian Hunter, who was videotaped earlier, has his girl Marina shoot Gav and then Julie, later Slim who. Rough but effective police detective Killian investigates, helped by Julie's friend Carly Marsh, and unravels even more sordid connections.

...what are you doing?

Getting intoxicated.

The guests are waiting.

They're getting intoxicated too.

Someone might catch us.

Now you just turned me on.

Do it.

Oh, Julie... are so beautiful.

Time's up.

I thought you girls

liked to post-coital cuddle.

Not when I have another gig.

I'm taking a shower.


-Who is it?


-Hunter wants to see you.



Let's go. Out.


-Come on!

Wait. I'm soaking wet.

-Dry off later.

-I thought you were a gentleman.

So much for first impressions.

-What's she doing here?


-My things.

-Get it later.


-When can I get my stuff?

-Sorry for the coitus interruptus.

We were done.

First half, as agreed.

Second half when the job is done.

So who am I doing?

Thank you for your generosity

and support...

...tonight and throughout

my entire campaign.

It's been a tough fight.

But I am convinced that on Tuesday...

...we will be forcing Mayor Garland

into early retirement.

And as City Council President

Frank Constantine can attest to...

...I'm committed to upgrading our

schools, building homeless shelters...

...and fighting the evils

of institutional gambling...

...within our city limits.

-Evening, captain.


That's a misdemeanor.

I had to go.

You won't let me go inside--

You're supposed to be

watching the grounds.

I thought you said

"watering the grounds."

Sorry, captain.

Hello, nice to see you.

Good to see you.


Everyone, remain calm!

Just stay where you are!

What happened?

Someone tried to shoot Washington

but hit the councilman.



Hang on. An ambulance is on the way.

Killian, you're on crowd control.

The window. The shooter's a caterer.

Freeze! Let me see your hands!

The camera.


Hey, honey. How's it shaking?

Slim, no hands! Remember?

Oh, yeah, that's right.

You're an actress now.

Come to my studio

and show me your act.

-I don't do that anymore.

-Once a stripper, always a stripper.

That kind of thinking makes you

a thin man, Slim.

Hey, Julie!

-My favorite girl.

-Hey, what's up?

Nothing a little bug spray

can't cure.

Hey, Julie,

tell your roommate here... she's shaking the wrong can

for a living.

-Are you ready?

-I've been ready since I got here.

He's such a sleaze!

I hope I get an acting job... I never have to see

his smarmy face.

Come on, cheer up.

Look what I got.

Toilet paper!

Did you hit another hotel?

The Barrington Wilshire.

I got to do it in a suite.

Guess what else?

I made rent.

All of it.

Who's the guy?

I don't know. But I'd do him again.

The latest we've heard

from this estate...

... is mayor hopeful Washington

was not hit.

City Councilman Constantine

stepped in the way...

...saving Miss Washington's life.

He was rushed

to Centinela Hospital...

... where he's in stable condition.

Police won't say...

... if Washington was the intended

victim without more evidence.

I wish we'd have

gotten that on tape.

We'd be so rich.

I am so tired. I'm going to bed.

Are you staying up?

Yeah. I'm gonna watch

my latest conquest.

God, when are you gonna finish

this documentary?

What can I say? I love the research.

-Good night.

-Good night.

Someone might catch us.

Now you just turned me on.

It's rare to get that rush.

That feeling of power.

Survival of the fittest

is the oldest business.

That's funny.

I thought something else was.

I'm out of that business.

Don't kid yourself.

-Ian. Sorry to bother you.

-It isn't safe for you to come here.

We agreed to meet tomorrow.

-I don't have your money.
