This, bar none, is one of the most satisfying, well written and acted thrillers since the heyday of Billy Wilder. Elliott Gould and Christopher Plummer play against type as a conniving bank teller and a brutal, psychopathic holdup man; the curious Susannah York and seductive CĂ©line Lomez are the women between them who may have agendas of their own. As directed by Daryl Duke, Curtis Hanson’s screenplay adaptation may be the most tightly constructed (plus intimate and convincing) movie of its kind. Can’t recommend this one highly enough … it’s a sure bet for a great discovery. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
