I am looking for the NAME OF A MOVIE, I currently know only the plot line. The movie is a B-grade suspense film I saw on cable (HBO? Showtime?- uncertain)back in the summer of 1995). I remember the following elements to the plot line: 1) Movie takes place in Southern California (San Diego or LA) 2) The main character is an artist with a British accent 3) He paints a painting of a woman cut in half (it is like a portrait painting but for some reason he chooses to paint her as if she is cut in half) 4) She is later found dead (cut in half) and the artist becomes a prime suspect 5) The real killers are on the loose as well and trying to get him before he "solves" the case to clear his identity 6) At one point he is "stuck with a needle" by the bad guys and knocked unconscious

Dear thundermuge: I am confident I have found the exact movie you are looking for. It contains the plot element of the painter painting a woman cut in half a later finding the woman's body really cut in half, and being accused of her murder. The movie is called "Fleshtones." Here's a snippet of a review from Amazon.com: "Set in Los Angeles, "Fleshtone" is about a lonely painter (Matthew Greco, played by Martin Kemp) who answers a phone sex ad, believing he's finally found someone who understands him--and, most importantly, someone who can turn him on. After awhile of "getting to know each other"--which mainly consists of them sharing sexual and morbid phone conversations--Edna Claire and Matthew agree to meet each other in a motel room. However, when Matthew arrives, he finds a dead, mutilated Edna instead--cut in two at the waist, and posed eerily like the bisected portrait she had insisted he draw of her awhile back." http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/6303932711/002-8095985-9797646?vi=glance Here is the movie's IMDB entry: http://us.imdb.com/Title?0109810#comment Search Strategy: "painter murder" using IMDB's plot search: http://www.imdb.com I hope this helps! If you have any need for clarification, please don't hesitate to ask. I would be more than happy to assist you further. Best Regards, blader-ga
