Mousetrap for Paltrow; A Perfect Murder Premier, 10.15pm - 12.15am.
She doesn't know that he knows. And Douglas, who treats his younger wife like an acquisition, plays the big bad cat to the illicit lovers' mice.
First he makes Mortensen an offer any sane man would refuse. When Mortensen questions why he would murder Douglas' wife, the businessman's reply is brutally frank: "Bad genes and greed."
Now Mortensen wants to know why Douglas wants his wife dead. He swots the query aside: "I appreciate your curiosity but my agenda is none of your concern."
Douglas gives sardonic weight and a slyly comic delivery to his relishable lines and it's his cold, calculating performance which makes this reworking of Hitchcock's Dial M For Murder so compelling. (1998) PPP
