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 qui... read more

Movie Spoilers (173 movies items)

"The insurance fraud was actually just a cover so Andrew could kill Milo. It turns out the gun had blanks in it, and Andrew was just screwing with Milo.

Haha, all the black spoiler bars make this review look like it's been censored by the government. It reminds me of that scene in "Ninotchka" where she gets a letter from Leon and most of it is crossed

The Overlooked and Underrated (119 movies items)

"I've always liked Michael Caine (who doesn't?), but "Sleuth" brought me new levels of appreciation for him. Both him and Oliver are beyond phenomenal here. Pfft, screw Marlon Brando in "The Godfather", Caine should have won an Oscar for this. Now if you don't mind, I have to go lay low for a while as I have just triggered an angry mob."
