best psychological thriller ever made
4 April 2002 | by zedboykSee all my reviews

Saw this years ago and have been trying to track it down ever since - I rate it as the best thriller ever - if you're into forensics, whodunnits, twisting plots... and just damn classic films (movies)

Timeless - not dated at all (well, a tad in the forensics department) - maybe as I was younger when I saw this, - just remains one of those films that stays with you forever. I've maybe convinced a hundred people to watch this and have had nothing but agreement - marvellous!!
