Sleuth

4

Anthony Shaffer's adaptation of his elaborately plotted stage thriller is a gripping exercise in psychological one-upmanship. Laurence Olivier is an aging crime novelist who enters a deadly battle of wits with his wife's younger lover, Michael Caine. Despite its obvious stage origins, Sleuth is a chance to witness an immaculately conceived script played by two actors at the top of their game.
