More character study than suspense/murder mystery
15 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not your typical murder mystery but rather a portrait based somewhat on conjecture of alleged murderess Barbara Hoffman. It's one of those movies that leaves things open-ended as far as what actually happened and what motivated the characters' actions. Also, the film's perspective and time-line both shift with no easily discernible pattern. The focus is really on the enigmatic personality of the main character and to a lesser extent that of her strange boyfriend. The chills and thrills are more of the intellectual sort than the edge-of-your-seat draw of a typical thriller. In a nutshell, the film is subtle. It's also very well-made. The acting is superb, the 70's sets and costumes spot on, the outdoor scenery appropriately stark, and the editing, which can be very tricky in a film of this nature, works really well. My one complaint was the courtroom scene at the beginning of the film. I would have preferred the suspense of not knowing the verdict until the end of the film. Other than that, it's an interesting film that ponders the mysteries of the human psyche, and well worth watching.
