Spectacular climb.. Spectacular fall..
11 May 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Element Of Doubt is a movie that surprised me from the start, as I was quickly engrossed in this "Will he or won't he?" mystery about a woman who is CONVINCED that her husband is trying to kill her. He of course dismisses it, and she's wondering if she's going crazy, but soon, more and more clues abound, and she's wondering more and more.

Sounds amazing so far, and it is! Nigel Havers is great in that normal fellow sort of way that you don't really suspect him, and that his wife played by Polly Adams, who is getting more paranoid by the minute, is just acting delirious.

Unfortunately, it's twist mid-conclusion, mini-mystery after that and it's somewhat rushed ending left me going "WHAT?" So great for the first 3/4, muddled after that. Too bad.
