It Was Only a Bloody Game

I believe the title of Sleuth may be misleading. When I first approached it I wasn't aware of the stage play it was based on and thought the film was going to be a standard “whodunit?”, and thus wasn’t expecting much from it. I couldn't have been more wrong. Watching it I soon discovered it to be a different film entirely, a giant mind game, a battle of wits. I’ve never seen a film quite l... read more

" one location, two magnificent actors with an amazing affinity, a brilliant script and English humor. The games, the illusions, the uncertainty, the capsizing of events, this film appears complete and fluent (2 hours of pure entertainment) despite the only place where it is played is a simple mansion. Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine are just impeccable, something that goes beyond acting (well, aren't they always?) it's hysterically funny too, I swear."
