Underrated Movie #297 ~ Sleuth

Sleuth
Laurence Olivier stars as Andrew Wyke, an unhappily married man who wants to rid of his wife without paying alimony. Aware of his spouse’s affair with Milo Tindle (Michael Caine), Wyke tells Tindle to rob the house and leave with the wife and her jewelry. The planned break-in sets off a string of twists that will keep you guessing who has the upper hand in this smart psychological thriller from director Joseph L. Mankiewicz. My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars.

Underrated Movie #296 ~ Closed Circuit

Closed Circuit
Martin and Claudia, top-flight lawyers who happen to be former lovers, become targets when they’re teamed up to defend a notorious terrorist. As the trial unfolds, the danger causes the pair to reevaluate their allegiance to justice. (Netflix) A very well-made thriller… exactly the kind of move I’m on the lookout for. It might have plot holes galore, but it moved so fast that I didn’t care. Starring Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, and Ciarán Hinds. My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars.
