Nifty non-horror episode
13 April 2012 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Wealthy and successful middle-aged businessman Leo Burns (an excellent and convincing performance by Hector Elizondo) suspects that his much younger wife Bridget (a fine portrayal by the gorgeous Patsy Kensit) is having an extramarital affair. Leo hires sleazy private investigator G.G. Devoe (adroitly played to the slimy hilt by Sam Waterston) to find out the identity of Bridget's lover. Director Kyle MacLachlan, working from a tight script by Ron Finley, relates the involving story at a steady pace and gives this episode a stylish film noirish look. The sound acting from the able cast keeps it humming: Elizondo astutely nails the paranoia and insecurity of his character, Waterston positively oozes from every scuzzy pore, and John Shea contributes a charming turn as hip'n'handsome radical young priest Father John Sejac. Popping up in cool bits are Adam West as private eye Chapman and an uncredited Miguel Ferror as a creepy hit-man. The grimly ironic surprise twist ending packs a pretty startling punch. John R. Leonetti's polished cinematography and the jazzy score by Branford Marsalis are both up to speed. A worthwhile show.
