Description by OLDIES.com:
Psychiatrist Isaac Barr is a noted expert in his field - and the perfect patsy in a devious scheme of murder and inheritance. And his fall could be straight down from atop a towering lighthouse.
Handcuffed in No Mercy, Richard Gere and Kim Basinger now face off on a lighthouse catwalk in Final Analysis, a gripping, masterful update of the complex psychological thrillers of yesteryear. Writer Wesley Strick (Cape Fear) and director Phil Joanou (State Of Grace) uncover sultry evil around each turn. The mood is sinister: Barr (Gere) breaches professional ethics by romancing the gorgeous sister of a troubled client (Uma Thurman). One black widow makes a mystery exciting. Two makes this one irresistible.
Set in San Francisco, this psychological thriller pits a smart and determined psychiatrist (Richard Gere) against two beautiful, inscrutable, and potentially dangerous sisters (Uma Thurman and Kim Basinger). After soliciting the help of a patient's older sister in order to help him understand her past, he begins an illicit affair that lures him into treacherous waters. The resulting triangle explodes into murder, a trial, and numerous double-crosses.
