Hanssen's so low-key he would be completely uninteresting if not for a couple of personal quirks: he likes to take naughty photos of his deeply devoted wife Bonnie (Parker) and pass them along to best buddy Jack (Strathairn) and he has a platonic relationship with stripper Priscilla (Pace), who becomes Hanssen's confidante. 122m/C VHS, DVD .
