Sleuth (1972) review

A very good movie

It is another movie I wanted to see for so many years but, eventually, it was definitely worth the wait. In fact, I first saw the remake directed by Kenneth Branagh about 7 years ago and, even though this remake didn’t get much love, I thought it was a decent watch. Well, I understand now why most of the viewers didn’t care for Branaggh's version  though since this classic was indeed miles better. I’m also glad that I saw this remake such a long time ago because, this way, I didn’t remember some crucial details. However, I wish I did see the damned thing with some subtitles as the dialogues were amazing but sometimes slightly difficult to follow, especially since English is not my mother-tongue. Anyway, the whole thing was just fascinating with 2 great (or should I say 3) performances from Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine who were both at the top of their game. The only minor issue I had was that, while Michael Caine looked amazing as Inspector Doppler, I thought he didn’t conceal enough his voice and it was pretty easy to recognize him after all but it wasn’t a big deal. Eventually, even though you spend more than 2 hours with only 2 actors in one single location, it was yet just so fascinating and spellbinding to behold. To conclude, I really loved the damned thing and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
