What a fabulous, complicated, feint and double feint movie about murder, attempted and otherwise. It’s a very British feeling film, and though it has a film noir darkness (very dark, in my copy), it doesn’t have the angularity nor the action of an American noir. More defining, though, is the deliberate parlor game feel to this very deadly situation.
