Sleuth (2007)

synopsis


Directed by critically-acclaimed director Kenneth Branagh, Jude Law and two-time Oscar-winner Michael Caine (1987, Best Supporting Actor, Hannah and Her Sisters; 2000, Best Supporting Actor, Cider House Rules) join forces in this sharp-witted, modern adaptation of the 1972 classic, Sleuth. Locked in a high-tech English manor, bound in a deadly duel of wits, Andrew Wyke (Caine) and Milo Tindle (Law) come together as English gentlemen to discuss the matter of Wyke's wife: the woman both are sleeping with. But as wit becomes wicked and clever becomes cutthroat, Wyke and Tindle's game of one-upmanship spirals out of control, in an escalating chess match that can have only one outcome: murder. Special Features: * Commentary by Director Kenneth Branagh and Actor Michael Caine * Commentary by Actor & Producer Jude Law * Sleuth: On Set * A Game of Cat & Mouse - Behind the Scenes of Sleuth * Inspector Black: Make-Up Secrets Revealed

a tad tedious

I love Michael Caine, and Jude Law isn't too bad either! Directed by Kenneth Branagh and written by Harold Pinter - it all held so much promise. But for me this movie was a tad tedious. I suppose it is typical of a play made for the screen - not enough movement to keep my interest, and almost always a bit too cerebral. Not a movie I would choose to see again. Having said that, the acting was superb. I confess to finding the 'making of the movie' much more interesting than the movie itself. I haven't seen the original version so can make no comparison.
