Audience Reviews for Tightrope

  • Nov 17, 2012
    A dark, stylish, unique and chilling film noir at it`s best. A taunt, well-crafted and superb mystery thriller that takes back to the old school cop films of the 40`s and 50`s. A gripping, disturbingly compelling and first-rate edge of your seat thriller. Clint Eastwood gives one of his finest performances ever.

    A riveting suspense thriller about a New Orleans homicide detective named Wes Block, played by Clint Eastwood in a remarkable performance who goes off the sexual deep end when is wife leaves him, as he explores the darker side of sexuality, at same time a sadistic serial killer is terrorizing the city with string of sex murders, Eastwood finds he has much common with the psychotic he is pursuing, two men on opposing sides of the law with the same taste in sleaze sex. Expert supporting performances from Genevieve Bujold, Dan Hedaya, Jenny Beck, and Alison Eastwood. A well-crafted, exciting thriller that is brilliantly written and directed by Eastwood's protegee Richard Tuggle. Highly Recommended.

    Clint Eastwood plays a New Orleans detective determined to track down a serial killer of prostitutes. Complicating matters is the fact that the unknown culprit is very likely an S&M fetishist....and so is Eastwood. The detective is profoundly disturbed at the likelihood that he and the killer have the same taste in women; this element of the case is equally troublesome for psychologist Genevieve Bujold, who finds herself attracted to Eastwood. The climax involves the killer's attempting to throw Eastwood off the track by kidnapping one of the detective's two daughters (played quite well by Clint's real-life daughter Alison). Despite its reliance on bloodletting, particularly in the final scenes, Tightrope is most effective when probing the hangups and vulnerabilities of Clint Eastwood's character.
