What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Wanted for Murder

    ***1/2. How British! The lady listening to jazz in the music store, the serial killer smashing his father's head at Madame Tussaud's, the crowd leaving Hyde Park in close formation. Now, in my opinion, Mother is just as guilty as Father regarding Son's madness. 1) She was overprotective. 2) I don't like her haircut. 3) She's British and 4) She's a woman. The guy was doomed. Recommended.
