Richmond Hill's rating of the film Play Misty for Me

A rather tentative formula-thriller - despite some odd jazzy and sexual longueurs adding little except length. Stock characters - ying and simple yang female counterpoints - hold it back from any sense of realism and modish editing merely adds noise without texture. Nevertheless it plots it's predictable way to the expected denouement passably enough.
