Judas Kiss is a 1998 crime thriller directed by Sebastian Gutierrez. In this drama of murder, deception, and a touch of humor, partners in crime Coco Chavez (Carla Gugino) and Junior Armstrong (Simon Baker-Denny) make a living in New Orleans by engaging in sex scams in hotels and blackmailing their victims. Fed up with this way of living, the pair orchestrate and execute an elaborate plan to kidnap a high profile computer genius for a four million dollar ransom that his company will be desperate to pay. During the heist, things suddenly go wrong and a mysterious woman at the computer wiz's apartment is shot and killed in the chaos. Coco is eventually devestated by the turn of events; though criminals, murder is a new playground neither she nor Junior have participated in. On the case is FBI Agent Sadie Hawkins (Emma Thompson) and her partner Detective David Friedman (Alan Rickman). The two go their separate ways during the investigation; Hawkins follows the trail of Chavez and Armstrong, investigating the kidnapping and ransom while Friedman digs into the dark and troublesome background of the murdered mystery woman, discovering that she is actually the wife of a ruthless and powerful Senator. The death of the woman continues to take its toll on Coco Chavez, and she begins to deteriorate mentally as things take a turn that neither she nor Junior Armstrong planned for or expected.
