Prime Suspect Reviews:

This movie was recently re-shown on TV; its'interesting that by just looking at the clothes and hairstyles a viewer can receive a reasonable guesstimate of the date the movie was made....I was proud to explore my guess of 1980 was not far off the mark!! However I digress....this is an perfect movie with a brilliant performance by the lead actor....this film attempts to portray the result on a person and his family when accused of a hideous crime and how the media,the public and his work colleagues and neighbours react to it. It is also an inspirational movie and a lesson for many on the "victims" response to such a serious 'accusation'.... From begin to finish this movie seems to be wholly realistic and credible...the writer/director/producers ought to be congratulated....those who create movies nowadays ought to learn that it is possible to create a compelling drama based on actuality without resorting to ludicrous unrealistic plots....


A most common phylum within the Theatre of Paranoia cinema category revolves about innocent boys who are in the wrong zone at the wrong time, causing diligent law enforcement agencies to pay close notice of them, thus radically changing the smooth tenor of their lives, with perhaps the most renowned example being THE WRONG MAN by Hitchcock; this film, produced for television, is one of the greatest of the lot, thanks to the contributions of a fine cast and above standard production characteristics. In an imaginary tiny southern California town of Santa Luisa, four young women have been abducted and murdered over a period of few years, with no suspect having been identified until a chain of circumstantial events, in combination with a vague witness description, casts suspicion upon respectable family boy and local business executive Frank Staplin (Mike Farrell) who had bought Woman Scout cookies from the newest victim, he being the last person observed with the kid while she was alive. Frank has come to the attention of the Santa Luisa Police Department due to his act as a nice citizen of reporting to detectives that he had bought the cookies, believing by his statement that the physical zone of the victim when last seen should be utilized as valuable data, but the investigators later search cause and occasion to concentrate their efforts upon the unfortunate Samaritan. His private life actually dramatically altered by being a homicide suspect, Frank, along with his bewildered wife and kid are most deeply distressed by rabid media attention to them, primarily from a local tv station's news division that fosters the customary streamlined journalistic mode concerning the notorious serial murder case, although telecaster Amy McCleary (Teri Garr) feels contrition as she becomes more knowledgeable of the Staplin family's new misery, and she attempts to actively aid the falsely accused boy as he sets about proving that he is gratis from guilt. The work is scripted well with naturalistic dialogue, but there are some obvious issues with continuity, such as when the recent victim, lured by the anonymous killer, is seen entering a car that is a close match of that driven by Staplin, this stage and the automobile connection therewith dropped during ragged post-production editing, and the role of Amy is erratically handled, apparently because the character's significance is being shifted during filming. Nonetheless, even with these shortcomings, and an obtrusively cookie cutter score, the movie generates interest in a viewer from the start, with the direction, cinematography and design all being top-flight notwithstanding a tiny budget, and there is an abundance of solid testing throughout, notably by the versatile Farrell and Garr, with Lane Smith and Barry Corbin impressive as zealous supervisory police personnel, the acting laurels earned here by Veronica Cartright as Staplin's wife, as she is affecting in every of her scenes despite a lack of retakes.


MIKE FARRELL and TERI GARR are two fine actors who have a fine chemistry together and elevate this by the numbers wrong boy kid assassin film method above where it could be but there are serious plot and continuity issues that mar the film, as one reviewer has already noted, and the ending is nothing less than infuriating and now mystifying. Here are some of the problems. Farrell buys woman scout cookies from a tiny woman who is later abducted and murdered but...what happens to the cookies? Both boxes simply disappear from the story. A farmer who should give MIKE an alibi is suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia and yet is operating risky massive machinery perfectly well. A stage clearly shows the murdered kid getting into what appears to be Farrell's vehicle and yet no explanation is given for this and the girl who remembers this fact suddenly never discloses what she just recalled to the cops. Virtually everyone around MIKE is hostile to him as the media attacks him as a serial kid assassin and yet once he makes up his mind to just return to work despite not knowing the final effect of the find for the assassin everyone seems to love him again. The stage where the true assassin is found is inserted into the movie AFTER the stage where MIKE returns happily to work amid helping staff members... making no sense. I don't know what film the another reviewers were watching but I prefer a film of this very primary sort to create coherent sense. It is even more offensive that this was released in this slapdash manner because much of it is really well directed and builds up considerable frustration and tension as one watches. Mike Farrell and Teri Garr are two of the very finest actors of their era and in 2018 neither are remembered by that many young folks for the fine entertainment they offered us back in the day. Teri Garr has suffered in newest years from a debilitating disease and it saddens me so much because her presence on a talk present such as David Letterman or in any sort of movie was a guarantee of fun and quality. She brought a sincerity to each movie role she ever played. To surround her with such unnecessary carelessness suggests that the movie was undergoing script modifications as it was being shot and edited and that the authors and especially the producers didn't care enough about the result. My wife kept telling throughout the movie "where are those woman scout cookies and what happened to them?" It's a fair question.
