This is what cinema is all about. Slick plot lines, great dialogue, superb acting. REMEMBER SPIELBERG GOT SLATED FOR DUEL ! I think we may have found the British version. £70,000 spent, £89 recouped at the box office. This should obviously make it a sure-fire hit on DVD. Go and buy it. A classic. If Hitchcock were alive he would be jealous. Seriously. Ignore the detractors. I remember first seeing Schindler's List and this gave me a similar feeling. Bold shots, swinging cameras, fast pace, a high dynamic which is hard to beat. The music too, WoW!! A masterpiece of a score if ever I heard one. Forget John Williams and all,this is the way forward for film.
