Dial M for Murder

Dial M for Murder ★★★★½

the suspense and the twists and turns were sooo good. it wasn’t scary or thrilling but instead just really interesting. 

grace kelly was really amazing and the trial scene was so cool with her. she had so much more emotional depth than anyone else too. 

like 12 Angry Men, it’s almost entirely in one setting with a lot of dialogue to move the movie along. unique angles and lighting help to switch it up and set the mood. 
and like I Care a Lot, few of the characters are entirely innocent. 

i really really liked the Agatha Christie-esque mystery. i think it will be cool to watch for a second time too with the knowledge of the results but to still look for more interconnections. 

one issue i had though was that the foreshadowing was a little bit obvious or annoying sometimes. but for the majority of the time, i had no idea what was coming next.
