Play Misty For Me (1971)



Reviews and Comments

Though its de facto remake, Fatal Attraction, gained greater notoriety, Clint Eastwood's Play Misty For Me (his first directorial effort) is far more effective a thriller and more psychologically compelling. Eastwood plays a man who has a fling with a woman who seems nice at first, then grows more and more unstable when he tries to break it off. Jessica Walter's performance is a scream.
