So, yesterday, I posted the following film-themed question to twitter:

The responses I received were so great that it has inspired me to start The Joseph Mallozzi Crime Club!
Moving forward (for as long as I’m able to maintain my viewing discipline) I’ll be announcing a new crime-themed movie every blog entry covering everything from the black and white classics to contemporary foreign cinema. I’ll watch and then weigh in with my thoughts the following day. Yes, that’s a movie day for the foreseeable future. You’re all free to join me in screening whichever of the movies I announce happen to catch your interest, hopping on and off this crime train as you see fit and joining in any discussion.
So we’ll kick things off with the Spanish thriller Contratiempo (The Invisible Guest). Check out the trailer to gauge your interest…
“A young businessman wakes up in a locked hotel room next to the body of his dead lover. He hires a prestigious lawyer to defend him, and over the course of one night, they work together to find out what happened.”
It’s available on Netflix (in my region of Canada). If you can track it down, great! I look forward to hearing your thoughts. If you’re unable to source it, fear not. Plenty more movies to come!
