Too lugubrious to be laughable...
5 March 2001 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

"Windows", a dreadful thriller about a lesbian psychotic and her straight-laced target, might have at least left us with some campy giggles, but alas--it is far too distasteful to laugh at. The opening scene, with Talia Shire attacked by a perv in her apartment, just goes on...and on...and on. What was director Gordon Willis thinking by allowing this ugly sequence to take up so much time? After this unfortunate encounter, our heroine turns inward and goes all quiet. Is there anything more deadly for a thriller then having a somnambulist leading character? She practically sleepwalks through the rest of the picture. The film has that dated, early-'80s look to it (brackish, shabby and "gritty", with thin neon lights snaking into shapes). I waited this thing out to see where the hell it was going. It goes nowhere...slowly. *1/2 from ****
