The Last of Sheila

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

The most interesting thing about this game-playing thriller seemed to be that it was scripted by real-life puzzle-freaks Anthony Perkins and Stephen Sondheim. The presence of an all-star cast promised... well, something. The film itself turned out to be heavily plotted hokum in which a group of six unlikely Hollywood luminaries, each with a guilty secret to hide, are brought together on a yacht anchored off a smart Mediterranean coast so that the film's Machiavellian villain (Coburn) - whose wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident after a party at which they were all present - can wreak impossible havoc on their psyches. Campy stuff, not as much fun as it should be.
