Interesting giallo/mystery/cop thriller
5 June 2006 | by ajji-2See all my reviews

this is not a typical giallo as it mixes elements of Agatha Christie type of who- done-it (Sherlock Holmes is referenced by a character), and cop thrillers with the regular giallo ingredients. the plot becomes a tad too convoluted by the end, and the final revelation is somewhat lacking in impact, but otherwise this is a fine little thriller that might even prompt multiple viewings. then there's that cast: Corrine Clery, beautiful as ever (especially sans clothes, though her jeans are eye-catching), and Eli Wallach in a pivotal role that he delves into admirably. the big question is, what the hell was Tom Skerritt doing in there? his part is negligible at best. Fans of animation should check out the brief clips of a pornographic, bondage-themed cartoon shown at a party. speaking of which, does anyone know the title of that cartoon film?
