By the time principal photography was completed in the spring of 1987, Peter Yates felt that "we really covered the whole spectrum of Washington, from Capitol Hill right down to the drain pipes by the Potomac. Suspect (1987) is a film which, we hope, will entertain and enthrall audiences." See more »
At 1:23 into the movie, when she is checking keys against file cabinets at the Justice dept., the key won't fit into one of the file cabinets, then the key fits the very next one. This is minor but would not happen. Since the file cabinets are identical, they key would at least FIT the lock (though it wouldn't turn the lock mechanism) unless it were the correct key. For example....all Master Lock keys (of the same sort) will fit the intended item perfectly - it just won't unlock it unless the tumblers match. See more »
Exciting, suspenseful and tightly woven suspense drama.
Cher proves she can ACT.
You probably will not immediately recognize Liam Neeson in the role of the deaf, mute, shell-shocked Carl Wayne Anderson.
For someone that does not speak for the entire film he turns in a stellar performance.
Dennis Quaid is very good as the juror that steps outside his assigned duties as a juror and becomes a detective.
Also John Mahoney is almost unrecognizable as Judge Matthew Helms -- a polar opposite from his "Frasier" character.
When I spoke to Tom Barbour (Justice Lowell in this film, stage actor and the father of Dudley Moore in the "Arthur" movies) he said when he got the script he was thrilled -- the film opens with him, it took place in his office, he had every other line, and then on page three -- well I guess you will just have to see it.
Surprise ending goes right up to the last couple of minutes -- prepare to be shocked.
