Not much tension in what aims to be a tension-filled thriller. Hackman is accused of raping and murdering several Puerto Rican women and spends the film being interrogated by detectives Freeman and Jane. Lots of talk but little to connect with in this remake of Claude Miller's very well respected "Garde a Vue." Both Hackman and Freeman co-executive produced.

Under Suspicion
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

This movie is pretty good and interesting. Police captain Victor Benezet, recently-divorced and world-weary, calls in prominent attorney Henry Hearst to clarify his statement about discovering the body of a girl, the second such murder in two weeks. As Hearst answers unconvincingly, Benezet reveals circumstantial evidence. The lawyer is under suspicion. The interrogation strips away Hearst's dignity, public persona, and even his toupee, exposing a breech with his beautiful and much younger wife, questionable sexual predilections and a damning hobby.
