Donald Sutherland shines in a clever script ....
Like a giant leech, blackmailer, Donald Sutherland, latches on to Tim Matheson, sucking him dry of cash. Seems Matheson's wife had hired private eye, Sutherland, to spy on her husband, and when Matheson accidentally kills a crooked cop things rapidly spiral out of control. The clever plot is easy to follow, and piles on layer after layer of misery for Matheson. Eventually, he can't take any more and hatches a plan of revenge. "Quicksand No Escape" is a true hidden gem of a film, with it's devilishly intriguing plot, strong despicable villain, and sympathetic hero. I am definitely pounding the table for this rarely seen movie, as it is "pure gold" for fans of either actor and those that admire a script that will keep you guessing. - MERK
