Bunny Lake Is Missing ★★★★½

Fuck!!! What a masterfully-directed mystery. Shot so beautifully and built so well, lots of perfect little misdirects and kicks to keep you in Carol Lynley’s wonderfully paranoid, stressed out shoes. Keir Dullea and Laurence Olivier are just as terrific as Lynley, and Noel Coward is having such a blast playing a real creep. That ending though... absolutely terrifying and fantastic. Can’t say much without spoiling it but my heart rate was elevated for the entire final 20 minutes.
