[There are] questions raised in The Order of Death that beg for tenable explanations of crimes which both cause and affect the matters of guilt. And here... the answers to such questions simply refuse to surface.
A memorable film that is interesting not for its plot (which is hopelessly complex) but for the strange tension between the characters. Keitel is exceptional as the berated captor turned victim, and Lydon is simply frightening.
