Upon contact with an electric guitar, Otto Preminger, born in 1906, got a shock, which he conveys in this jangled psychological thriller from 1965, set in swinging London.
A middling thriller,
The effect is stingingly poignant.
Bunny Lake is Missing is a victory of form over content, of a great filmmaker surpassing the limits of their source material.
...a promising thriller that slowly-but-surely wears out its welcome.
One of Preminger's best films, this stylish psychological mystery-thriller is extremely well shot and well acted by Olivier, Carol Lynley and Keir Dulea.
A solid-but-frustratingly-tantalizing experience.
Somehow the unconvincing story is engrossing, as the marvelous supporting cast put it over... .
Olivier is excellent as the analytical inspector, his easy-going grace a delightful contrast to the two stars.
Artfully directed, professionally performed and just twisty enough to make viewers get lost in the overtly Hitchcockian trappings...
As disturbing as he's supposed to be, Wilson is also the film's uncanniest highlight.
Preminger's well-constructed and suspenseful film in the Hitchcock tradition is worth watching for the performances, but alas the conclusion comes as something of a let down.
Whenever I watch a good film and don't like it, I feel like I'm missing something. And this was one of those moments. Okay, not entirely true, I liked *parts* of it. The ending. Oh my god. Painful. I dunno. Mixed.
!!! SPOILER ALERT !!! This movie sucks.
umm wtf? one of the most ridiculous 'thriller's i've seen. the americans were just embarrassing, especially in the final scene. olivier can do no wrong and noel coward was hilarious but otherwise i'm pretty sure i laughed at all the wrong parts. still entertaining in a perverse kind of way
Great performances (namely Lawrence Olivier), incredible titles by Saul Bass and even better direction from Otto Preminger who delivers 25 of the most jarring final minutes (MUCH of which is owed to Fritz Lang) I've seen in a movie to date. Bunny Lake is Missing is an all-around creepy movie with everything from the brother/sister relationship, that landlord with that chihuahua to the secondary cast. It seemed to shift gears a lot and often made me wonder if they were going to go to the proverbial "there." I felt gypped when The Zombies were finally shown (I'm a big fan) and I truly despised the movie's score. Worth it for the ending, but be warned--this movie does take a while to get going.
