Woman in Question Reviews

    A film made from multiple perspectives as police investigate a murder. It's the strong performances reflecting different takes on the same events which make this work. Bias and self-promotion influence each witness ingeniously as they give their accounts. This set up also, possibly inadvertently exposes the fallacy of the camera as a neutral observer. If each account is different, it's the camera which creates that difference. Logically if the camera constructs different versions of the truth, it's a small step to say no one version is true. With a whiff of Rashomon and an affection for the working class characters, this is well worth a watch.

    Very watchable murder mystery that has something of an 'Agatha Christie' storytelling style.
