Low-budget and slow, but effective and well acted.
2 August 2001 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I second the "worth a look" rating. McGoohan and Van Cleef are both excellent and the film makes wonderful use of a few tracks from Brian Eno's Music for Films. It is not action packed, but it is suspenseful just the same.
