An average movie

To be honest, I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this flick but since I hadn’t seen something directed by Jonathan Demme for a while, I thought I should check this one out. Eventually, I didn’t like it much, I’m afraid. Indeed, I thought it was a terribly murky and rather underwhelming thriller and I really had a hard time to care about the damned thing. I have to admit, I did watc... read more

An early Jonathan Demme Film, that pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock, starring the talented Roy Scheider and co-starring Sam Levene, my Dad.

“To be honest, I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this flick but since I hadn’t seen something directed by Jonathan Demme for a while, I thought I should check this one out. Eventually, I didn’t like it much, I’m afraid. Indeed, I thought it was a terribly murky and rather underwhelming thriller and I really had a hard time to care about the damned thing. I have to admit, I did watch the movie on the BBC without subtitles so I might have missed a couple of things but I highly doubt that it would have made any difference in another context. To be fair, I don’t think Roy Scheider should be blamed as he did his best with this material. One of the cool things though was to see the great Christopher Walken. He was pretty cool as usual but his part was very small, unfortunately.” read more

Walken through his movies (100 movies items)

"As Eckart, boss of Roy Scheider's character, Walken just appears once in the whole movie. Directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs). A few years later they worked together in Who Am I This Time?, an episode from American Playhouse. "
