    A perfect murder in theory

    A very good updated version of Hitchcock's Dial M For Murder. Gwyneth and Viggo steam up the screen with their passion for each other while believing that no one could possibly know about their affair. Michael Douglas is very scary as a cold, calculating Wall Street broker who has discovered his young wife's affair with a would-be artist who has a past of seducing women, conning them out of large sums of money and then moving and changing his identity. Douglas' character reminded me a lot of his role in Wall Street. It is a very smart and intense movie that leaves you dying to know who will out wit (or outlive) who.

    Great film

    Awesome movie. Michael and Gwyneth recapture the glamour of a 40's mystery film.
