I love this movie. Great performances by everyone except Dyan Cannon... But what are you gonna do about her anyway? The plot is a never-ending spiral where you have no idea what will happen next. The perfect thriller capable of rivaling Murder on the Orient Express.
this was a late night movie and i was expecting some woeful 80's comic thriller. but i really enjoyed this film. Caine and Reeve have excellent chemistry and the plot is interesting enough to keep you guessing. the tone is wonderfully charming and old world (ala Caine) and the dialogue is witty and engaging. well worth the watch.
Maybe not quite as good 'Sleuth' (a little bit too gimmicky) but still a great thriller. Caine is great but it is actually Christopher Reeve who is the most interesting, playing against 'Superman' type as the sociopath student. Perhaps a few too many twists at the end and the psychic character is a bit annoying but well worth watching as a double bill with the original 'Sleuth'.
like watching a play within a play within a play - this movie is perfect. there isn't a single predictable twist (for all the 10+ twists that this movie has got!) This movie is great. Watch it. Love it. A gifted critic couldn't call it "bad" ;)
I was originally reluctantly dragged to this film at the cinema and remember that I thought it was so good I went back and saw it again a week later. The plot twists are brillant and the acting is first class.
This is a Rubix cube of a films (well portrayed by the poster) and has many twists and turns to be very entertaining. On it's own this wouldn't be enough though and fortunately the performances are also fantastic. Michael Caine, Dyann Cannon and Chistopher Reeve have fantastic chemistry between them. It's adapted from a play and seems to convert very well just as Sleuth did.
1. Christopher Reeve is gorgeous. 2. There was a scene early on in the movie where Christopher Reeve's acting was pretty much as amazing as anything else I've ever seen. 3. The plot developments had me trippin.
