Critics reviews

There’s a certain amount of corniness, once we figure out the plot and get the climactic catharsis, but the intrigue is compelling, the jumble of genre tropes bold, even insolent, and the manipulation of our emotions and expectations never less than adroit. A wintry late work by a sharp-eyed master.
