You may need a bath after this

Slow, deliberate, creepy, grimy, grim, repressed.

The recreation of one of Britains most famous serial killers crimes and the impact on one family in particular is nothing if not sober in tone.

Director Richard Fleischer had recent "true crime" form with his version of The Boston Strangler 1968, Fleischer shoots with hand-held cameras under realistically dim lighting, creating an intimate close up portrait of the house and its occupants.

As such the performances have to match, and do. Richard Attenboroughs in particular. His portrayal of Christie will come as a shock to those who only know him from the Jurassic Park series or Miracle on 34th Street. John Hurt and Judy Geeson as the young, ill-educated Evans couple do well though Hurts accent is a little wayward early on.

Actually, also a strong argument FOR the death penalty

I am a strong supporter of the death penalty in cases of serial/thrill/sex killers, mass murderers, first degree murderers and terrorists. Although this is the the case that brought about the end of Capitol punishment in England, for me it only reinforced my support, for if ever there was a justifiable candidate for it, Christie fits the bill. It does, however, make the case for making damn sure you get it right and have 100% proof beyond a confession. A decade later, England was again rocked by the child murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley and there was a huge outcry for the return of death penalty for these two monsters. If one wrong execution could end the practice, these horrific murders should have reinstated it. Don't get me wrong, it was a travesty that the wrong man paid for Christie's crimes. There is a gut wrenching, English movie called Let Him Have It (1991) that portrays the poignant injustice of Derek Bentley's hanging in the 50's for being an accessory to the killing of a police officer. It was one of the best movies I have ever seen but I will never watch it again. I am not a crier, but the tears just wouldn't stop during the final scenes of this excellent, little known film. Getting back to this movie review, Attenborough plays Christie as a soft spoken, prissy, prim and proper gentleman, yet he exudes pure evil and depravity. His performance is brilliantly bland. John Hurt, while not a totally sympathetic character, plays dazed and confused wonderfully. The story is told in an unemotional, chilling, non graphic way that makes it all the more terrifying. The sets evoke a feeling of squalor and despair, yet the cinematography is beautiful. This movie probably deserves a 10 but the feelings of sheer disgust and loathing it left me with are preventing me from going higher than 8.

managing to extricate myself from the horrible atmosphere depicted I was astonished to discover.....

That this is such a perfect work created from such a dark and dirty tale is a tribute to all involved. The tight, near claustrophobic direction from Fletcher ensures we can almost smell the dour details and surroundings of this desperate dwelling in the Notting Hill area of London at the end of the 40s. The war is over but the ruined buildings and their surviving inhabitants are barely held together. Attenborough conveys in a towering but terrifying performance the very essence of a weak and pathetic creature clinging on because of the depth of his depravity and need for victims. John Hurt and Judy Geeson are also excellent, each probably giving one of their best ever performances. It is the intensity of the acting, the very grime and grimness of the building they share and the streets they walk that make one flinch at the very sight and sound of life within this horrible unforgiving little world, largely orchestrated by and for the benefit of Mr Christie, with his numerous and wretched little cups of tea. After watching this and managing to extricate myself from the horrible atmosphere depicted I was astonished to discover that subsequent to the hanging and subsequent pardoning and re-burial of Timothy Evans there is now a consensus that suggests that maybe he really did kill his wife and child. This still leaves the psychopathic necrophilic serial killer that was Christie but even so....
