''Murder By Numbers'' is a 2002 thriller starring SandraBullock, with Michael Pitt and Ryan Gosling. (Trust me, [[DracoInLeatherPants everyone only remembers those last two.]]) Det. Cassie Mayweather suspects more at work than an unplanned act of violence when a young woman is found strangled to death in a ditch. Her gut instincts get her in trouble with her supervisors, but they lead her [[ReverseWhodunnit correctly]] to [[SmugSnake privileged, smug]] high school student Richard Haywood... and from there to brooding NietzscheWannabe Justin Pendleton. The connection between the two boys is more than imagined, and as their mind games played with the police and with each other grow still more complicated, Cassie attempts to find some way to put an end to their plans.

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Richard doesn't really care about personal space around Justin. He invades it on a daily basis and makes a point out of hugging him any chance he gets. [[HoYay Not that Justin seems to mind all that much.]]
