Murder by Numbers

Murder by Numbers ''Sandra Bullock has never been more original or affecting'' (Michael Sragow, Baltimore Sun) as Cassie Mayweather, a homicide detective confronting personal demons while following her instincts about the real killerss in a Jane Doe murder case. The clues point one way -- but the chain of evidence is too perfect.

Fascinating elements of police procedure meld with escalating tension in this suspense thriller directed by Barbet Schroeder (Reversal of Fortune, Single White Female). Besides Bullock's ''best role in recent memory'' (Susan Stark, The Detroit News), the film features Ryan Gosling (The Believer) and Michael Pitt (Finding Forrester) in ''unnerving and breakout performances'' (Carrie Rickey, The Philedelphia Inquirer) as bored rich kids who meticulously plan and execute a perfect murder, then watch as police fall for every planted clue. They figure they've gotten away with it. What they don't figure right is Cassie Mayweather.
