Movie Info

Hugo Buckton (Gabriel Byrne) seems to have it all: He is apparently rich and has a beautiful wife (Amanda Donohoe) and a doting son. In actuality, though, Hugo is having money problems and is paranoid that his wife is cheating on him. After a boozy night at a party, Hugo hits and kills a woman with his car -- and at his friends' urging, keeps driving. When Hugo starts receiving letters from someone who knows about the accident, he begins to suspect that he has been set up.

Critic Reviews for Diamond Skulls (Dark Obsession)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (7)

  • A stylish melodrama about sex and violence among the British aristocracy, Diamond Skulls never quite delivers the punches it promises.

  • The controlled technique echoes the theme of domination, but combined with the largely unsympathetic characters, results in a film that affects emotion and remains curiously hollow.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • Rarely does a documentary film maker make the transition to fiction as adroitly as Nicholas Broomfield has in "Dark Obsession," a psychological thriller displaying a documentarian's fascination for small, telling details.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 4/5
  • [Broomfield] wants to show us how the very fabric of the lives of these aristocrats has undercut their human perspective, has convinced them they are above and beyond the law.

    January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Intended as a psycho-thriller, Broomfield's film is in fact a skimpily plotted rumination on what's rank among the privileged.

    January 1, 2000 | Full Review…
  • [It] attempts to make a serious social statement within the context of a mainstream entertainment. But the mix never gels, and it succeeds as neither.
