MA. 2004. Gungho tabloid re­porter John Leguizamo may have the scoop of a life­time when a man he saves from an an­gry mob prom­ises him in­for­ma­tion about a grisly se­rial killer. Torn be­tween ad­vis­ing po­lice and get­ting his name in lights is less a dilemma for Leguizamo than it would be for most re­porters. Ter­rific tale. Damian Al­cazar.
