Audience Reviews for Columbo: Murder, a Self Portrait

Stylistic and well-crafted, Murder, A Self Portrait is a noir thriller that's fun and exciting. While investigating a drowning Lt. Columbo suspects the victim's ex-husband, famous painter Max Barsini, of killing her, and attempts to prove it by using her dream therapy tape recordings. The characters are quite interesting and are developed fairly well. The visual style of the film is also impressive, especially in its usage of noir undertones. Murder, A Self Portrait is an artistic and intriguing mystery film that's full of suspense.
