The Net (1995)

In this day and age, who hasn't experienced Angela Bennett's plight.  Well, perhaps not THAT extreme, but I'm sure at least a suspicious credit card charge was involved.  While it wasn't a summer blockbuster, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.  It was ahead of it's time, but Sandra Bullock, red-hot off of Speed (1994) (the movie) showed some decent acting chops playing a sympathetic shut-in for this modern day Hitchcock flick.  Dennis Miller does a phenomenal job co-starring as Dennis Miller her psychiatrist.

The Net was filmed in Venice, Santa Monica and San Francisco, CA and Oxon Hill, MD

Location: Senator Bergstrom's Suicide
Address: 153 National Plaza, Oxon Hill, MD  National Harbor

When Senator Bergstrom does not receive a clean bill of health, he heads to Hains Point at the tip of East Potomac Park to eat an apple, bargain with his son and blow his brains out.  A large, creepy sculpture, known as The Awakening, is seen as the shot is fired.   It has since been moved to it's current location in the National Harbor, which has been built up with apartment building and restaurants.
