| Brisk suspense movie that holds the attention.
Brisk suspense movie that holds the attention - even if the baddie does seem rather obvious from early on in the proceedings.

Directors today are a lot more sophisticated than they were when 'talkies' became a thing... and that's not always a good thing. Often the director's fingerprints are all over a good story and they just serve to dilute the narrative, not make it better.

So; for old folk like me, it's a nice change to see scenes blend simply together, no silly timeline confusion and best of all - every camera is firmly attached to a tripod!

The Madonna's Secret follows the life of a tortured artist as he faces accusations of multiple murders. His beautiful models seem to meet with unfortunate endings and the cops all think they point to the painter.

Perhaps they do, as he hears voices, has bad dreams and forgets chunks of his life. Perhaps they don't as there are circumstances that point to other culprits... Most of you won't have to wait till the end to find out as the more perceptive will see the guilty party telegraphed before you, long before the players do!

With that said, it's still a good fun ride buoyed by a really good cast of actors even in the minor roles. Will Wright is a treat doing what he does best... crusty old geezer down by the river! (You'll recognize the face as he was in every movie made in the 40s and every TV show made in the 50s!) And there are endless other similar cameos to put names to in this yarn.

Worth a watch.. and right now it's free on YouTube!
