Pleins feux sur l'assassin

Georges Franju France, 1961

Loz Loory's rating of the film Spotlight on a Murderer

A fun romp in the spirit of Agatha Christie mysteries. Loved the bombastic trumpet music over the shots of the castle. Loved the Disney-fication of the castle. Loved the (now antiquated) sound system (what happens if more than one person is in more than one room? What track do you play?) Wonder if the dying man should have been shown entering the closet. Perhaps more suspenseful if we don't know he's there?
