Image result for copycat 1995Copycat (1995; USA; Technicolor; 123m) ∗∗∗  d. Jon Amiel; w. Ann Biderman, David Madsen; ph. László Kovács; m. Christopher Young.  Cast: Holly Hunter, Sigourney Weaver, Dermot Mulroney, William McNamara, Harry Connick Jr., Will Patton, John Rothman, J.E. Freeman, Shannon O’Hurley, Bob Greene, Tony Haney, Danny Kovacs, Tahmus Rounds, David Michael Silverman, Scott DeVenney. An agoraphobic psychologist and a female detective must work together to take down a serial killer who copies serial killers from the past. Tone shifts don’t help this otherwise enjoyable and often tense thriller. Weaver is excellent as emotionally scarred psychologist haunted by her past. Hunter delivers an eccentric performance sometimes at odds with the material. Connick, Jr. is surprisingly creepy. [18]
