David Prade: No, the male is always small, and, in case you're interested, he gets eaten by the female after he has performed his necessary function.
Baroness de la Vailion: [In French] Ooo lala!

"Stop blinding me with science!"
26 October 2013 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Psychological thriller from producer-director Val Guest could perhaps use more thrills and less psychology. Racecar driver fights against getting psychiatric help after a road accident--which killed the other driver--has left him badly shaken; his spouse begs him to reconsider, particularly after she becomes the target of her husband's subconscious rage. Adaptation of Ronald Scott Thorn's novel "The Full Treatment" (the movie's alternate title), by Thorn and Guest, has some tart dialogue and solid performances, and looks great as photography by Gilbert Taylor, but the midsection of the film is redundant. Guest turns the plot-screws with careful deliberation, but is too slow in getting this web untangled. **1/2 from ****
