Excellent Murder Mystery - Jigsaw review by MD

Spoiler Alert
27/02/2016

It's a fairly good recommendation,if Halliwell's Film Guide gives you a star award.Well Jigsaw has two stars.

Not surprisingly.It's good in every endeavour,and is equal to Val Guest's other 1961 offering The Day the Earth Caught Fire.

There is no let up in the way the story moves forward,not a single moment is wasted or doesn't contain a wry bit of humour,or telling comment.

Very cinematic,superbly acted and directed.A Taut,tense excellently tailored murder mystery.

Women behaving bizarrely - Jigsaw review by JT

Spoiler Alert
23/04/2020

A seedy sixties Brighton backdrop provides the saving grace to this woefully dated film. The male cast carry off their roles passably with the help of a reasonable script. However the women (particularly Yolande Donlan as Jean) appear to have staggered off the set of Village of the Damned, so bizarre are their appalling lines and the deranged method of delivering them. This unfortunate pair swoon, weep and wimper their way through the film in a painful fashion. Sadly this harks back to a time when women in film were depicted as decorative airheads unable to function without a male to prop them up. Thankfully we’ve moved on somewhat and this disgracefully sexist writing wouldn’t make the grade today.
