When Walter Stackhouse, an architect with a passion for writing, stumbles across an article about the unsolved murder case of Helen Kimmel, the gradual descent into a pit of lies, betrayal, and guilt awaits him. More and more--as the unhappily married Walter seeks inspiration for his crime novel--he finds himself entangled in a thorny mystery, without realising, however, that he alienates himself from Clara. Now, before a precarious situation, morbid thoughts start flooding Walter's confused mind, as Clara's untimely death intertwines the two deaths that share a small, but strange resemblance. But, as flimsy fabrications and inescapable contradictions multiply, who will be able to tell the difference between a liar and a murderer?

The word 'sociopath' is tossed around a lot. Sometimes it's used pejoratively, such as the movie "The Sixth Sense", where it was often associated with the title character. However, the term has been coined by neuroscientists to describe a psychiatric condition where people behave in a self-centered, self-indulgent way. One thing that is not mentioned by the psychiatrists and psychologists, and that is the psychopath's psychopathology. It's called "paranoid schizophrenia". It's characterized by the inability to trust others, and a tendency to violate other people's privacy, including a need to be in complete control over their own bodies. All of these features of the psychopath make them dangerous, and a huge challenge to the police and other law enforcement agencies. They're also more likely to have access to guns than the average person. With a psychopath, even if you try to put up a good front, he will break your arm, or cut your throat, or kill you, or do anything else that would be considered by anyone else a homicide. And yet, no one thinks twice about the police chasing the psychopath, because he looks like a real human being. He looks like an ordinary person, but he's more dangerous than the average person. Why? The psychopath is driven by a psychosis, and the best treatment for him is an institutionalization. But that doesn't seem to be working for the psychopath. So he escapes and goes on the run. He comes across a small town where he gets the attention of a local cop. The cop wants the psychopath to be arrested, but he has no choice but to arrest him anyway. The psychopath doesn't go back to jail. He escapes from prison and begins his journey to New York City. He gets to the Big Apple, and has a run in with the police. And then he kills a cop and then escapes, because he's so desperate that he will do anything to get out of prison. He uses his authority to take care of his friends and family, even when they're on the verge of being killed. He uses violence to get his way. He breaks into a drug store and kills all the workers, because he's just so desperate. And then he's able to get the drug he's been looking for. The big question, of course, is whether or not the psychopath has the capacity to be rehabilitated. One of the main questions in the movie is "are we taking the psychopath seriously?". The answer to that question is "yes, we are." The psychopath's psychotic traits are a challenge to society. They make it difficult for police and other law enforcement officials to do their jobs. They're a threat to the community. And yet, no one seems to think twice about the psychopath, and there's no mention of any rehabilitation or treatment for him. The psychotherapist in the movie is a psychologist, who seems to be more interested in the psychopath's condition than his treatment. One of the other characters says, "I can't believe we have a psychotherapist here who's just not on the case." I'm not sure if that's because the psychotherapist isn't on the case, or because the psychopath's psychotic nature is so difficult to treat. What we're left with is an intelligent, thoughtful, and well-acted movie about a man who commits a crime and then flees, and ends up in a small town where he goes to work as a street janitor, and the authorities aren't interested in him. The police eventually get him back to New York City, but he's out of prison, and so the movie ends there. I don't know what happened to him. He didn't come back to the small town to see his friends and family again. He didn't even return to jail to serve his sentence. And yet, the police continue to pursue the psychopath. What are we to make of that? It's a good movie, and it does an excellent job of showing

I went to see "A Kind of Murder" with my wife, her friend, and a friend of mine who's father is the ex-teacher. We were all pleasantly surprised. This film was made on a modest budget, but the quality of the acting and direction were impressive. We had no idea what to expect and were totally immersed in the story. The way the story was told made it very enjoyable. The story is about a murder and the victims' families and the investigation. It does not explain the whole story, but that is part of the film's charm. It is very similar to the "Suicide Squad" movies in terms of plot and the pace of the film. It was fast-paced and the ending was good. It does not follow the typical "dramatic" ending that many films do. There is a twist in the end that was very unexpected. The acting was great, the directing was excellent, and the cinematography was spectacular. Overall, this was a great film that was well worth watching.

I think that the characters were just right. Not overly in-your-face characters. The pacing of the film was perfect. The beginning of the film was a little slow but the film got better and better as it went on. I found myself finding new characters and never being bored of them. I can't wait to see it again on the big screen. I think that the film really shows the conflicts that can arise from the struggles of being a single parent. The only other film that I have seen like this that I have seen was The Hurt Locker. I think that this film is one of the best in the genre and I would recommend it to anyone. It is not a Hollywood masterpiece but it is a very good film.

I first watched this movie after seeing the director's statement in a newsgroup on horror movies, and even though the director is one of my favorite directors (The Village, City of Lost Children, Ghost Story), I had to admit that this was one of his weaker efforts. But, after seeing it, I could finally forgive it and can recommend it to others. This movie is about a young woman who is just going through a divorce when her husband is murdered in the office and the police seem to lose interest in the case. She gets a call from a man claiming to be the man's son, and she starts to investigate his past and find out that he was involved with her former husband's death and she is also involved in the murder. At first, I had a hard time watching this movie because I didn't have the feeling that I was watching a good film. It was dark and boring, and the ending was not very good. However, after seeing the film a second time, I realized that this movie had a good point to it, and it is good in that it shows the point of a father and a daughter who go through a rough time and try to find out who the murderer is. It was worth watching and you might want to see it for the director's statement, but you will not be disappointed. It is not as good as I thought it was going to be, but it is good. I rate this film 8/10.

First off, I am not a very big fan of the genre. I like crime thrillers, but I do not like them for the way they are often portrayed in the media. I never really buy into the idea that if the main character is a woman, he is most likely the hero. There are just too many coincidences that can be overlooked, especially in a case like this. As far as the cast goes, this is a very good cast with a few great actors that really bring their characters to life. Now, on to the movie itself. The movie is about a real life serial killer and his girlfriend. The killer is played by Dennis Quaid, and his girlfriend is played by Keira Knightley. I am not a huge fan of Knightley, but she is great in this movie, and I do think that she is probably the best actor of the cast. I think that Quaid and Knightley both give solid performances, and I would not even mind if they were the leads. It is a very good movie, but I would say that I would not watch it again. I would only recommend this movie to a very select few people. However, I think that it would be a good watch for anyone.

First off, this film was released in 2014, which means the case had been open for some time. I didn't see this until 2013 and didn't even know about it until 2014. This was a pretty cool and well thought out story, the main characters did a great job of showing their characters, the mystery was great, I was intrigued and left the theater wondering what was going to happen next. It has a good balance of action, mystery, and suspense, and the ending was a surprise for me. This film was not a total "feel good" film, it was a very "real" movie. If you want a great, suspenseful, story with a lot of action, this is the film for you. There are some very cool action sequences throughout the film and it kept my interest from beginning to end. All in all, a great film. I rate this film 8/10.

In 2011, a talented young actor with a promising career, Danny Glover, left his small, but successful, Los Angeles City Council district to star in the superb thriller, "The Dark Knight Rises." Before this film, he was playing a shady millionaire in a quirky TV show called "Malibu's Most Wanted." In his spare time, he was a childhood friend of mine, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and a beloved family friend of mine. Philip was then a young actor, and a well-respected one at that, who was in a handful of highly successful films, including "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," "The Master," and "Eagle Eye." These films were excellent, and had me excited about what he could do in film, but it was his role in "The Dark Knight Rises" that took him to the heights he has achieved today. So, I was thrilled when "The Dark Knight Rises" hit the theaters, and even more so when I heard Danny was playing the lead in the film. In my opinion, "The Dark Knight Rises" is a great film. I won't go into too much detail on the plot, but it is a perfect example of a great film. It is the story of Batman's downfall, and his final confrontation with the Joker. There are no doubts about who the main antagonist is, and the film is filled with action, intrigue, and intrigue. The pacing is brilliant, and it is an extremely dark and complex film, with only one scene that is completely cut out. The main actor, Michael Caine, who is brilliant in everything he does, plays the Joker with such ferocity, you forget he is in it, and feel for him. Every actor plays their role perfectly. The movie is a masterpiece, and it is one of the best films of the year. I would give this film a perfect 10/10.

I have never read the novel, but I am definitely looking forward to seeing the movie. I am very curious to know what was included in the novel that I have not seen in the film. I have seen the film several times and it is a great film. I think the actors did an excellent job. I really think that Charlie (Edward Norton) and Paul (Ryan Phillipe) did an excellent job, as well as the actors who played Paul and Charlie. I also really liked the script. It was very original and a little bit different from the novel. I think it is very important to watch the film to really understand the novel and what the book is all about. I think the movie is very good and is worth seeing. I am a big fan of the novel and I think that it is one of the best books ever written.

I don't think this movie is a tragedy, but a true crime drama. But I'm just a victim of my own curiosity. The best scene in the movie is the one in the cemetery. I'll never forget it.

The original was brilliant but when i saw the remake i was disappointed. It was like they tried to make it like the original but just didn't quite work. The first one was so dark and mysterious, it had a great soundtrack, it had great acting. The remake tried to mix the darkness with the comedy and the whole movie just wasn't that good. The remake of this movie just seemed too good to be true. The cast of this movie was brilliant, great acting, brilliant script and great music, but they were just not in it as much as they were in the original. You could tell that the writers were trying to make a sequel but just didn't quite work. The only person that really impressed me was Idris Elba, he was really good. But he was just not in this movie nearly as much as he was in the original. But i was still really happy that the actors who were in the original made an appearance in this movie, the actors who were in the remake were just not as good as the actors in the original. I was just hoping they would make a sequel to the original so i could watch the original again. But i'm not sure that would be a good idea.

I loved this film. It's not your typical R-rated film. It's much darker than the typical film, and not for the faint of heart. It has some very graphic scenes and violence. I really liked the story line, it was very well done and well thought out. The performances were very good all around. The villain was played very well, and the main character was played very well. I really enjoyed this film. I think that the main reason I liked it was because it was a story I could relate to. The story was also very well done. It had a very interesting twist at the end. It was a very good film.

Lara Flynn Boyle is the perfect choice to play the FBI agent named Kate Harper. She doesn't have to use much facial expressions to convey the emotion that she feels. The chemistry between her and Tom Cruise's character, Ryan Stone, is just as good as that between Katie Holmes and Edward Norton's character, Alex Cross. She is an excellent character actress. The story itself is a good one, but it is a bit predictable. It takes a while for the story to come together, but the action does keep you on the edge of your seat. In the end, it is a very satisfying movie.

I wasn't that familiar with the name Alfred Molina, but after I watched this movie I wanted to see what his other movies were. I am so glad I saw this one. The plot is very intriguing. It tells a story of a serial killer who preys on children in New York. He preys on his victims because he loves them. He seems to be a very loving person. He seems to love everyone. His life is not easy. He is plagued by demons, and he just wants a normal life. He seems to have been very troubled in his life, and he has been abandoned by his mother. I really liked the acting in this movie. The acting by Molina and the other actors are very believable. I think the acting is very important to make a good movie. I really think that this movie deserves an 8.5/10.

First of all, i don't see why all these critics hate on this movie. It's a very well made film with great cast. The plot and the story line is very good. I really enjoyed the story, the way it was told, and how everything related to the audience. I loved how it was different from any other movies i have seen, it really made me want to watch the movie again. I think it is one of the best of the year so far, it was very good. Overall, it was very well made and i would recommend it to anybody who likes a good thriller or a movie with good acting. 9.9/10

I have seen "Hitchcock" movies before, but this one is really different and very enjoyable. The dialog is smart and the performances are very good. Robert Redford, in my opinion, is the best actor in this movie, and Jennifer Jason Leigh was really good too. The music is very beautiful and adds to the movie very well. This movie has a very good ending that I enjoyed. It is worth watching. This is a good movie that is really well worth watching. If you are interested in watching a movie, that will keep you interested, and with a great cast, then I strongly recommend this movie.

The documentary "The Killing of Sister Helen Prejean" is the story of the mysterious murder of Sister Helen Prejean, a gifted young Irish nun in 1937, during which the now-adult Prejean was brutally raped and murdered. To this day, the mystery of Sister Helen Prejean's murder remains unsolved. The film, made with an award-winning documentary filmmaker, his son, and an expert on the subject, tells the story of the "greatest unsolved case in American history," but is careful to avoid giving the actual details of the case out-of-context. The filmmakers have also removed all the gore, including the rape and murder of the young nun. The film is filled with stunning photography, great set design, and excellent acting. It is truly a wonderful film, that not only deserves recognition, but is even more deserving of it.

Just another film about a young woman who makes a shocking discovery while out shopping and starts to investigate what she found. Even though this is a nice story, I think it was a little boring. I thought it was a little too long and the end was kind of disappointing. I'm sure the end of this film will be very interesting to a lot of people and it will probably be quite the thriller. I did enjoy the film and I will be looking forward to the sequel.

Saw this movie last night and I have to say it was very entertaining. I was somewhat skeptical about it, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It is a thriller/mystery with some slight romantic aspects. It is very well directed and the acting is very good. The story is very good and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. I really enjoyed the ending and I would recommend this movie to anyone who is into mystery/thrillers. It is a movie I would watch again. I was also very impressed by the casting. It was nice to see Christian Slater and Richard Jenkins. If you are looking for a great thriller/mystery then I recommend this movie. 8/10.

There is a feeling that "somehow, someway, this will make sense" when watching this movie. It's an absolute joy to watch. I would say that the acting is superb. The director did a great job. I would have loved to have seen the character of the detective play a greater role. Overall, the movie is entertaining and a must see.

As many have stated before, I don't know if this movie is good or bad. I have only seen the trailer for it and don't know if I would watch it if it came out on TV. I think the movie is good because it shows you what happened to the characters, but it's not perfect. Some of the scenes in the trailer aren't really in the movie and some of the acting isn't really very good. I think this movie is worth seeing, but only if you like psychological thrillers, because the suspense is a little weak. Overall, I think this movie is great, but it doesn't quite hit the mark.

i don't know if it's a spoiler, but you'll see. you'll see. this movie is just about to be released on DVD and the rating is currently 8.1, so if you like dark comedies and "retro" movies then this movie is for you. this movie is about a young woman who's boyfriend is killing her mother for no reason. the movie ends with a really good scene of the killer showing up at her job. i wouldn't say this movie is very violent, but it has a lot of creepy moments and you will definitely get scared.

I'd seen the previews and was excited to see this film. My friends were nervous. I loved it. Why? Well, it was the best character of the year. The story was so real and yet so out of the blue. It's a film that really shows how far people will go to get what they want. Not only does this film give a unique look at how the system can work, it gives you a look at how we are conditioned to go through life. The ending was great. It really hit you in the feels. We all know the ending, and the big question in my mind was "How do you handle that?". I would recommend this film to anyone. Don't be scared off by the low reviews, because it is a masterpiece. 8/10

You could make a very good movie about this subject matter. but a good movie doesn't have to be about this topic. This is a movie about a young man, John Hawkes, who gets a terrible death at the hands of some people who he knows and who he trusts. This movie is not only about the death, it is also about the events after the death. This is not a film for the faint hearted. This is a movie for the fans of the crime genre.
