The Feminine Touch - A.K.A. The November Conspiracy is POLITICS AS USUAL but Masterfully portrayed
15 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How prophetic was this film? It hinted a Consortiums seeking to destroy the American Way of Life, of ascendancy to the Presidency through whatever means, fair or foul, it has secret clues, with assassins everywhere (in our current U.S. Climate we've replaced it with political and news assassins in lieu of actual killers) and it places a damsel in distress. I'd say poor Mrs Clinton fits the bill, though this film was pure fiction, it was thrilling, fast-paced, and chock full of great actors, especially the director/Star Conrad Janis whose Mork and Mindy image was forever shot down by his seemingly benign, yet icy portrayal of a powerful lobbyist who'd stop at NOTHING to promote his views (sound familiar?), and both George Segal and Elliott Gould also definitely stepped out of their mold of buffoonery and gave two very good, realistic and incisive performances. Paige Turco has never been, and may never again be as good as she was in the part of Jenny Barron, a woman of beauty and strength, a will of iron, and a woman's heart that is broken when her lover of 4 years, Dirk Benedict is found dead, shot by the very Black Op agency who had hired him to assassinate 'Enemies of the People'. A great supporting cast rounds out this Non-Stop Action Thriller including Bo Hopkins as the Polilce Chief, the eclectic and sexy Maria Grimm as Turco's friend who stood in the way and paid the ultimate price, Virginia Capers as 'Mama', Richard Kline as Turco's boss, Lois Nettleton as Dirk Benedict's secret contact, Bret Anthony (now starring in Conrad Janis' latest film BAD BLOOD), Woodrow B. Hood as main Secret Agent, and a slew of wonderful supporting actors. This movie outshone all Independent Action Thrillers by his plausibility, and lack of BIGGER, BETTER BANGS....it relied on cleverness, suspense, character development and a sense of the Times. I hear it is to be released on D.V.D. soon. I can't wait.
