The Stakes Don't Get Any Higher.
A timely political thriller steeped in illegal oil trading, the russian mafia and governmental cover-ups.

"...a riveting thriller full of good scares...  F. X. Feeney, LA Weekly
"Christian Slater and Selma Blair head a solid cast...  Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note
Producer Harvey Kahn (ROW YOUR BOAT) takes a turn at directing in this star-powered thriller set in the near future. A war in the Middle East has made gas prices skyrocket, and investment banker Tom Hanson (Christian Slater, VERY BAD THINGS) is approached to investigate a deal to take over a huge Russian oil company. As it becomes increasingly clear that there are some shady dealings going on--though obfuscation on exactly what may stem from writer and former Goldman-Sachs employee Ruth Epstein's familiarity with overly-technical matters--Tom succeeds in hiring a new recruit, the ecologically-minded Abby (Selma Blair, HELLBOY). Love blossoms, but is interrupted by the appearance of femme fatale Anna (Angie Harmon, LAW & ORDER), who seduces him. Ultimately, however, Tom begins to realize both the implications of the deal with which he is enmeshed, as well as the true intentions of his new paramour.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"[The script] is crammed with insider jargon that makes the business side of the movie sound both credible and mystifying." 06/17/2005 p.E25

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
The Deal, like a lot of real-life Wall Street deals, is a labyrinth into which the plot tends to disappear. The ideas in the film are challenging, the level of expertise is high, the performances are convincing, and it's only at the level of story construction and dramatic clarity that the film doesn't succeed. - Roger Ebert

New York Times 6 of 10
It's when The Deal leaves the corporate offices behind that the story turns into a bogus, convoluted mess. Once the Russian mafia, personified by Angie Harmon playing an evil seductress with a terrible Russian accent, rears its head, the ballgame is over. - Stephen Holden
