||Sleuth - Two-Handed Brilliance With Murder In Mind!!|
Everyone knows that Olivier and Caine can act. But together? If you enjoy either of these fine actors, this movie is a must. A superb tale that twists and turns throughout, as two men from opposite ends of the British social ladder engage in a dangerous battle of wits. Olivier is the successful author of crime novels in which his hero always puts one over the police, who are portrayed as dim-witted. Caine is the London hairdresser who is having an affair with Olivier's wife, and wants to marry her. A meeting is called at Olivier's country mansion, and the mind games begin. But what is each one's motive for this meeting? Who is manipulating who? Expect plenty of twists and surprises. One of the best movies made, and a genuine classic for your DVD collection. Don't miss it.

||RE: still no reissue!|
This has always been one of my favorite films. A tour-de-force from Olivier and a very young Michael Caine. I have the horrible Anchor Bay version, which is a 'fipper' disc. This is one of the last holdouts of great films, that have yet to be remastered and reissued. I hope it will be soon...
