Sleuth (1972)

A mystery novelist devises an insurance scam with his wife’s lover – but things aren’t exactly as they seem.


At the beginning I found this film a bit boring, but as it starts to develop, it really kept my attention.
Amazing actors and story. Really worth seeing.

And I agree with Paulorsadv: it's a underrated film.

A very underrated movie with a great plot, great twists, a mysterious atmosphere and amazing performances by Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine. Definitely a movie more people need to see.
