I rented this John Frankenheimer thriller because it's a John Frankenheimer thriller. The man knows chills, paranoia, and how to make all kinds of weird shots work. And this film fits with his style beautifully. It's cold, claustrophobic, and features surprisingly little dialogue and lots of unusual shots. I suppose in a way it's a classic of its era. Movies this dark and unsettling don't get made these days - certainly not with top box-office stars like Rock Hudson.

All that said, I didn't really enjoy it much. It's not a movie that's easy to like. But it's interesting.
