If It Were Any Slower, They'd Throw Dirt on It, 4 February 2008
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

It takes three fourths of the movie for anything to happen. People stand around, making speeches, posing in little groups. For long stretches there are individual shots of different characters. After a line is delivered, they all stand wait a few seconds to say anything. There is not emotion, not even movement. The plot involves a cad who gets his just deserts and those suspected of killing him. Unlike most of these old mystery movies, there is little charm; not even an eccentric character to speak of. There are a series of interrogation scenes designed to give us clues, but they are so lifeless, it doesn't matter. Don't bother.
