Title: Wait Until Dark (1967)
Post by: Tucumcari Bound on August 12, 2008, 01:28:22 PM
A recently blinded woman (Audrey Hepburn) is terrorized by a trio of thugs while they search for a heroin stuffed doll they believe is in her apartment.

I know many of you here are fans of the lovely Audrey Hepburn and she's fantastic here in this ultimate thriller. Do not miss it if you're into horror or suspense-filled films. Audrey is great here along with supporting help from Richard Crenna, another actor I love.

Didn't Ebert absolutely hate this movie?

I'm not sure. It wouldn't surprise me though. He hates a lot of great films but raves about some horrible one's.

Seriously. He gave 'Blue Velvet' like 0 stars because he didn't like how David Lynch appeared to have treated his actors.

He did make some statements to that effect, but the balance of his review was that he didn't like the movie's refusal to deal with its material in a straightforward manner, disguising it as "satire".

I haven't seen this film, BTW. I'm not sure if I'm interested in it, the premise seems a bit gimmicky, but I'll keep an eye out.
