This isn’t art… This is a craft.
An old-fashioned single-setting whodunnit that eats away at your nerves with a slow build of tension that’s as consistent as the dripping of blood from a freshly cadavered trunk.
Packed with deliberate dialogue and a slow burn, this may not be for everyone, but I had a great time. And I love that the story’s strong enough that it could have just as easily been a play, a novel, of even one of those old-school radio mysteries that I used listen to, late into the night, as I hid under the covers.
So slip on your best smoking jacket, pour yourself a generous snifter of brandy and settle in as Mark Rylance expertly spins the thrilling threads of a yarn that’s as intriging and finely crafted as grandfather’s fine leather chair.
”We can talk about shocking originality later.”
