Culture Maven review: "See How They Run"

C D K · Culture Maven on Film: "See How They Run"

Film Review & Podcast by c d kaplan

Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap” is famously the most continuously running play ever. Since 1952, only COVID stopped its run at London’s West End, but it restarted a year later and is still on.

This funny film cleverly pays its respects to Ms.Christie, in that it's about solving a murder that happens at a party celebrating the 100th performance of the play.

On the case are Sam Rockwell, and the forced-upon-him sidekick, Saoirse Ronan.

It is the marvelous performance of Ms. Ronan as Inspector Stalker that steals the film.

Which is pretty darned good and entertaining otherwise.

For more, listen to my podcast above.
