Fairly interesting 'noir' thriller.
29 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Harry Lane is picked up by police after being found carrying a gun inside the hotel room of a dead man. Questioned by the police, he gives police his confession and explains to them the long series of events that lead him to commit murder.

This obscurely titled thriller told in flashback, is vaguely similar to DETOUR; a man makes a foolish mistake, then tries to correct it, but his attempts only drag him deeper in to trouble. The films upbeat twist ending is a bit far fetched. Don Castle, who sporting a mustache, resembles a cross between Clark Gable and Tom Neal. Castle, like leading lady Virginia Christine (Folgers Coffee lady, THE MUMMY'S CURSE) and the rest of the cast are acceptable. Overall, INVISIBLE WALL is a fairly interesting one for the buffs.
