As far as directorial debuts are concerned, Anthony Waller's Mute Witness is a very impressive start indeed. It is the type of film that thanks to the boom in DVD market, have been unearthed by the studios from their vault that contains dozens of excellent little films yet waiting to go digital.
A mute American film technician working on a small horror slasher in Moscow accidentally witnesses a 'snuff' movie..this of course leads to edge-of-your-seat chases that are very well filmed, and to the conspiracy behind this gruesome affair, at the centre of which reigns the greatest of them all, Sir Alec Guiness in his last film for cinema before his death (in 2000).
The plot is not flawless of course,(there are just a few, especially in the second half),but the brilliant directing and the development of the plot will more than compensate for that.
Think of Afraid of Dark (the hugely underrated and excellent Brit independant film about a nearly blind boy who also witnesses a murder), and Halloween 2 with its non stop chases down hospital corridors,and you will probably have an idea about Mute Witness. Having said that, it is still an original film (Moscow setting, 'Snuff' movies', Alec Guiness..), and not your average commercial suspense movie the genre and like of which litter the market.
Good performances by all, excellent direction,nail biting scenes, these are all good enough reasons to make Mute Witness a fresh little movie that can be watched and enjoyed again and again.

This film is a masterly piece of thriller cinema, unique for several reasons. First, it places a small, young American film crew in Moscow shooting a low-budget independent film--how many movies have that setting? Second, the protagonist, one of the crew, is a mute woman who serves various functions on the crew: props person, makeup artist, and others--and how many movies have that kind of protagonist? Third, it is the last appearance of Alec Guiness in a feature film.
The young woman accidentally witnesses a brutal murder by two Russian men of a Russian woman. The men hear something during the killing and chase her. What ensues is much more clever than a typical woman-in-jeopardy tale. The writer-director, Anthony Waller, does a superb job of throwing in unpredictable twists and turns at every bend in the road. The resolution is excellent and getting there is a whole lot of fun. It's great to see this top-notch suspense thriller finally coming out on DVD.
Upon release, this received excellent reviews from diverse publications. Highly recommended.

Mute Witness is a story that at times seems confusing, but the suspense is almost unbearable. The first half of the movie is just the best and is handled like an Alfred Hitchcock thriller with excellent camera work and mood. It centers around a mute make-up artist who is assisting a film crew shooting a horror movie in a Moscow studio. While there she is witness to a brutal murder of a prostitute at the hands of some who are making a snuff movie. From that moment, suspense abounds with each frame of the movie. There is some unevenness with the script, but overlook that because you are in for one hell of a rollercoaster thrill ride. This was never in wide release and that was a real shame. Originality never looked this good!

I was very hesitant about renting this on video because of the awful cover. It is overwrought and suggests nothing of the masterpiece within. In fact, it makes one think that it contains a cheap horror film, which this is definitely not.
This is actually a good, solid thriller with a terrific lead performance by Marina Zudina. Director Anthony Waller shows he knows something about the--dare I say it?--Hitchcockian school of terror. Let's hope he does something of this caliber again.
And watch out for that cameo by Mystery Guest Star.

Comparisons to Hitchcock's style are not unwarranted in this case. The first half hour of this film is a powerhouse of suspense that keeps you biting your nails and screaming "Run Mute Witness!!". Great fun! Just when you think you can sit back and breath a sigh of relief, it starts all over again. A great film for a late night scarefest or Halloween party. My friends and I have such fun watching this thriller

MUTE WITNESS follows the classic styles of Hitchcockian-tale with nail-biting suspense that holds much tension especially the most exciting 20 minutes chase scene in the studio. It's the rarely best!!!
