  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film Detective Story

    Must see film. Douglas gives arguably his best performance, Lee Grant is also great here, too bad she was blacklisted soon after. Check her out in the Landlord from the 70s for another fine performance from her

  5. pmarasa's rating of the film Detective Story

    What a cast: madmen all, snarled like a fishing-line for lost souls.

  6. Ellie Groom's rating of the film Detective Story

    This picture packs a whole lot of great stories and characters into one small set.

  7. Laura Hilton-Smith's rating of the film Detective Story

    No.10 - Briliant story-telling. I love the fact that the film all takes place during one day in one location and how the fingerprinting of each new arrival creates the rhythm and punctuation for the story.

  8. Bill Rosenfield's rating of the film Detective Story

    A surprisingly pungent movie directed in a claustrophobic style by William Wyler with intense ( and sometimes over the top) performances from Kirk Douglas, Eleanor Parker, a very young Lee Grant and a strange performance from Joesph Wiseman. It really crackles.

  9. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Detective Story

    Extraordinary performance of the whole cast. It's a Hollywood psychodrama yes but Kirk Douglas and Eleanor Parker transcend their characters. Masterpiece.
