A film you may never have heard of, but really should see. Trust me. You may hear the word Hitchcockian thrown around, everyone would like to achieve something that sings of the master, and, so, it gets used when anybody turns a corner and the music makes you jump. You could go a long way before you find anything that has even the slightest resemblance to the works of Sir Alfred.
Well, look no further. No, don't pay attention to the fact that it is Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts (with Patrick Stewart and Director Richard Donner thrown in) Rather see the everyday people thrown into the madness that only real life can destroy us with, and spit us out when it is done. Everyman fights the insanity that shouldn't be happening, but is, like "The Lady Vanishes," "The 39 Steps," even "The Man Who Knew Too Much." These are all precursors of this story of the obviously deranged man who is in love with this fairly normal girl, and is here to protect her from imagined danger. Or is it? Buy your copy of "The Catcher In The Rye" and follow us, it's a ride down the stairs streight-jacketed in a wheel chair!
