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 them hostage. As Dorleac urges her tremulous husband to do something, the two criminals begin behaving in a fashion that can only inadequately be described as eccentric. Drawing upon two of Polanski's favorite themes-isolation and latent insanity--Cul de Sac actually improves upon each viewing, assu ... (more)

A Complete review of Roman Polanski's work (21 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"

"Ihan kätevää sekoilua Polanskilta jälleen kerran. Lionel Stander on roolissaan huikean ärsyttävä ja siksi erittäin onnistunut hahmo. Roolisuorituksessa ei mitään vikaa - sen sijaan herran ääni, olemus ja asenne hahmona on aivan karmean epäsympaattinen. Françoise Dorléacia ei voi olla rakastamatta! Herra Polanski lienee tietoisesti pistänyt neitokaisen keikistelemään useaan otteeseen alasti tai varsin vähäpukeisesti. Mutta en tässä Dorléacin muotoja palvo, vaan myös roolis"
