Not your usual movie review
The 70s Horror Suspense Thriller Hyperdrama directed by the late Irvin Kershner, (the guy who also directed Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Never Say Never Again and Robocop 2)
Starring the premier and overfamous Hyper-dramatic (yeah) Actress of the 1970s - FAYE DUNAWAY "I'm (SIGH!) alright." MURDER, SUSPENSE and A 70s SOUNDTRACK FROM AN ACTUAL 70s MOVIE! RETRO-WOW!
See perverted Raul Julia leaping on women, Tommy Lee Jones say: "I LOVE you. I LOVE you."too funny to be sexy but good try, Tommy!
Retro Commercials in inopportune spots, "Plop Plop Fiz Fiz..."
An over-long, misleading plot trail 70s style! "Gee, he's not the killer after all. No wonder the movie didn't end 15 minutes ago!" (can't believe John Carpenter wrote this)
And a bad case of shamelessly letting your girlfriend, Barbra Streisand, sing the tortured and irrelevant theme song. "WHAAAAAAAAT is it about You" You go, Jon Peters (the producer)!
A MURDER SUSPENSE DRAMA WITH LOTS OF LAUGHS
JADED ARTIST THEMES and
NO SEX SCENES, NO VIOLENCE
(I saw more violence from Bette Davis in Agatha Christie's Murder On The Nile) but please still watch it - its considered the first Hollywood (American) movie to try the Giallo genre and was also a big box office hit!
