Poor Diane

ImageUntraceable (Warners)
After A Walk on the Moon put her back on the map as one of our very best actresses and Unfaithful made her a star, Diane Lane has been unable to find a decent script and is forced to act in rote thrillers like this one, where she plays an FBI agent specializing in internet crimes who tracks down a fiendish killer with a website that displays his dastardly deeds as they happen. This uncredited remake of The Silence of the Lambs at least gives its lead actress a juicy role, but Lane -- as good as she is -- won’t win an Oscar for this, a la Jodie Foster.
Filmmaker commentary; four making-of featurettes.
