Underrated Movie #349 ~ The Interview

The Interview
Ah, Yes… This is exactly what I’m on the lookout for. The Interview is an Australian police drama in which unemployed, poverty-stricken Eddie Rodney Fleming (Hugo Weaving), after losing his wife and home, is dragged from his apartment by police and subjected to a brutal interrogation. Eventually, it becomes terrifyingly apparent to Eddie that the police consider him a suspect for more than just a stolen car. Detective Sgt. John Steele (Tony Martin) and his assistant, Detective Sgt. Constable Wayne Prior (Aaron Jeffrey), make audiotapes of their efforts to get Fleming to confess. My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars.
