Mcpeer's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

One of Clint's most overlooked and under appreciated films, Play Misty For Me shows a side to Eastwood that we rarely see anymore. Jessica Walter is fantastic as a psycho-stalker in her best performance ever put on film - next to Lucile Bluth. Eastwood creates a sense of unease while building tension effectively and planting seeds early. While it doesn't quite hold up like once use to, it's still a tense thriller.
