Sleuth








Director - Kenneth Branagh

Genre - Comedy/Drama/Mystery/Thriller


Michael Caine and Jude Law have a go at each other in this economical thriller performed only by the aforementioned actors. Sparring with words and wit in a life and death battle of masochistic malevolence, this is a precarious match played for keeps. Caine stars as a well to do crime author and Law is the chap who has been playing 'Hide the Salami' with the former's wife. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, it is stripped of most of the trappings associated with conventional thrillers, leaving us one which can only be made by an actor.

3.5 STARS!
