Sleuth 1972 ★★★★★

Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier are fantastic and have perfect chemistry. You even get a show stealing performance by Alec Cawthorne and small, but just as great, performances by John Matthews and Eve Channing. The dialogue is incredibly written and quotable. The story is intelligent and sophisticated. The twists are thinly disguised and you can never see them coming. There are even great elements of black humor. The set design is gorgeous. This film is perfect from beginning to end.
