Description: The fact that there isn't a single likeable character in Cul de Sac does not diminish its artistic value in the least. Ageing, furtively kinky Donald Pleasence is married to sexy young Francoise Dorleac. The couple's hermitlike tranquility is shattered when wounded gangsters Jack MacGowan and Lionel Stander invade their home and hold ... (more)

"6.11.2013 It seems to me that Polanski went to a Stockholm syndrome type of comedy set up with this home invasion flick. Lionel Stander is acting all loud and obnoxious, but his theatrical acting perhaps brings some good and non-threatening vibes, since Françoise Dorléac's witty wife seems to act like she's having the best time of her life between all those scenes where she complains to fruity Donald Pleasence for being a coward and not manly enough in their situation. Pleasence was actuall"

"First viewing - Apr. 29th/30th So I started this one night & was really into it for the first hour. But after that I started falling asleep, so I turned it off & tried to finish it again the next night & again I was falling asleep. I eventually managed to stay awake long enough to finish it but I can't say I felt like I'd seen anything amazing or worth my staying up for. Donald Pleasance is great in his role here though & the rest of the cast is believable enough. The story reminded me a little"

A Complete review of Roman Polanski's work (20 movies items)

" Cast : Donald Pleasence, Françoise Dorléac, Jacqueline Bisset What was it about? A wounded criminal and his dying partner take refuge at a beachfront castle. The owners of the castle, a meek Englishman and his willful French wife, are initially the unwilling hosts to the criminals. Quickly, however, the relationships between the criminal, the wife, and the Englishman begin to shift in humorous and bizarre fashion. My two cents: Just a year after making his first masterpiece st"

"DVD Skidisti yliarvostettu elokuva, tuumaa tämä supersankari. Komediapuoli on Polanskille tyypillistä "itkeäkö vai nauraa" kauraa, jota on sikäli viihdyttävää katsella, muttei kahta tuntia. Hahmoja syvennetään maukkaasti ja ihmisten teennäisyyttä ja kuoressa pysymistä peilaillaan näiden kautta, mutta toisin kun Veteen upotetussa veittessä, ei Umpikujassa saada aikaiseksi suljetun paikan jännittynyttä tunnelmaa, eikä puutumiseen kääntyneen katselusession päättävä loppuhu"
