I mean, to be honest, it was actually not b... read more

Description: Following the disastrous Pirates (1986), director Roman Polanski got back on creative track with this finely-wrought thriller that, while failing to impress at the box office, was nevertheless his most critically well-received film of the decade. Playing cleverly on American fears about Europe's Byzantine politics and "decadent" society, Frantic received, from many observers, perhaps the greatest compliment possible for a thriller, comparison to the work of Alfred Hitchcock.

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: June (14 movies items)

"June 30 "Have you and your wife been to Paris before?" "Yes, on our honeymoon." "Is it possible she met someone here? Someone she has been thinking about?" "Since June 15th, 1968?"

It's a really solid thriller with Harrison Ford that was really suspenseful and kept me interested in what was going to happen from the start. There's even some Hitchcock influence in the story as wel"
