Sleuth (1972)



Reviews and Comments

Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine turn in two well deserved Academy Award nominated performances in this (essentially) two-man cat and mouse game with more twists and turns than the average roller coaster. The story is riveting, the dialogue fresh and crisp, and the cinematography (which has a fascinating knack for cutting to the decor in the middle of conversations) is superb. Not to be missed.
