Movie Info

Backstab an erotic, mystery thriller made in Canada, and directed by Jim Kaufman, is the story of an architect Cliff Murphy (James Brolin), who spends the night with a beautiful woman only to find his murdered boss next to him in bed. Cliff is framed for the murder, and he must prove his innocence. This average thriller, with a lackluster performance by James Brolin never really takes off. The pace is too leisurely and the courtroom finale and plot twists are not convincing. The cast also
