Someone To Watch Over Me (1987)

Ridley Scott directs Tom Berenger, Mimi Rogers and Lorraine Bracco in this thriller where a rookie NYC detective is assigned guard duty for a beautiful socialite who has witnessed a murder.

As a thriller, pretty basic. Ridley makes sure this looks fantastic, turning the upper east side into a fantasia of mirrors and beams of diffused light. Yet this never can overcome the fact that no man would ever cheat on Lorraine Bracco. Stretches credulity to suggest so.
