A Slight Case of Murder Reviews

    A very entertaining William H Macy movie. Could be one of his least known performances, but definitely among his best.

    Every so often a little gem of a movie comes along and surprises me. This brilliant film is one. William H Macy makes this film his own as his superb asides to the camera are truly funny and well done. His complete lack of ethics do not bother the viewer as he robs banks, kills people and bangs a cops wife. You know it cannot end well but you don't care because you are having so much fun watching this excellent film.

    This is Macey at his best in a comedic role. The scripting and dialogue are likewise tops. The play within a play format adds to the fun as Macey addresses the audience while his life falls apart. If you like murder, mayhem, sleazy characters, and smart cops, all wrapped up in a funny movie, you will love this gem.

    William H. Macy makes every film he is in better. As usual, he is terrific. Good story, amusing and always interesting. It can't quite escape it's television roots, which for me is a negative thing for a film, but it is entertaining. ?he supporting cast is fine, but it's Macy's film all the way.
