Solid Hitch
4 September 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Solid Hitchcock. Lee (Cassavetes) is such a smug, calculating young stage actor, he's obnoxious from the start. Once Lee starts plotting with old flame Diana (Rowlands) to bump off her rich older husband (Matheson), he becomes wicked, as well. Not a flattering role for fine actor Cassavetes, but he brings it off well. Suspense builds as the conniving couple plot against her inconvenient hubby (Matheson). Does he suspect something or not. After all, they're not exactly subtle with their relationship. The screenplay manages to fill out the hour without draggy padding, and builds to a climax I didn't see coming. Yet, all the bases are covered in good ironic fashion. Smooth direction from noir movie veteran John Brahm, though the speeding car process shots are really phony. Nonetheless, it's solid Hitch, with a fine cast. Fans should not be disappointed.
