MY REVIEW: Slewth (1972)
When I first saw the cover of the movie "Slewth" I immediately thought it was a Sherlock Holmes Watson buddy crime solving "who done it" mystery film. I was mistaken. This is one of the smartest movies I've seen in a long time, the chemistry between two titans like Olivier and Caine is just remarkable and the script is solid. This film follows the trend of adapted movie by a play like "The Importance Of Being Earnest" of 1957 and the recent "Carnage" by Polansky. What gives an edge to Slewth is that it's inventive, unpredictable with a perfect balance of serious dialog and witty British humor. At first, the premise seems
simple: Milo Tindle (Caine) wants to marry a girl, problem is that she's already married with a man called Andrew (Olivier). Andrew invites Milo to his huge villa and they discuss how to settle the situation. The game starts here. MY VOTE IS A 9.
