Rare Maltese Falconish yarn
4 October 1999 | by mgmaxSee all my reviews

Very rare low-budget film from director Endfield (Zulu) plays like a not-bad student film version of The Maltese Falcon-- the supporting performances aren't always convincing but there are nice touches of visual imagination and good pacing.
