Desolate double-crossing
9 October 2003 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

First viewing: October 1984 / Second viewing: October 2003

For the last nineteen years my only memory that I had of `Paint Me A Murder' was one of cliffs and aggressive paintings. After watching it again this afternoon, these two things still stand out - but there's more depth to this one than I previously gave it credit for. A reasonably engaging `Hammer House Of Mystery And Suspense' tale which follows a rather stilted path between a trio of gallery owner, artist and wife. Faked death, murder attempts and a Shakespearean climax is what we get. And lest I forget, two more things: Alan Lake plays yet another loser in the last acting role of his life while Mark Heath as the Inspector gives the finest acting performance I have ever seen anyone give in my whole life. 6/10
