Critic Reviews for Still of the Night

All Critics (6)

Slavishly imitative of all those B-film noir clichés.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Still of the Night is a sophisticated murder mystery drama.

Apesar do roteiro estúpido e absurdo, o filme tem boa edição, conseguindo criar suspense em algumas seqüências. Incrível que tenha sido dirigido por Benton depois de Kramer Vs. Kramer.

Audience Reviews for Still of the Night


The talented leads are lost in this generic noir that goes nowhere and leaves more than a few????? left behind.

★★★ (out of four) Roy Sheider and Meryl Streep make the most of this fairly good thriller. It aspires to be in the Hitchcock vein. It almost succeeds, but it's plot is pretty obvious and the suspense is serviceable. Dr. Sam Rice (Sheider) is a psychiatrist who is treating a museum curator. The patient ends up dead and soon Rice is visited by the curator's co-worker and mistress, Brooke Reynolds (Streep). Rice becomes intrigued by the woman and starts to fall for her. When another death occurs and he finds himself being followed by a woman who resembles Brooke, he starts to think that he might be in some danger. Streep and Sheider are pros and they are very good here which helps lift the overall quality of the film. [IMG][/IMG]

A so-so thriller, it's pretty predictable and all, and the ending is confusing.
