A psychological thriller in which Anthony Hopkins plays Arthur Jamison, a successful criminal attorney who has foul play on his mind when he discovers that his wife Louise is seeking a divorce and plans to blackmail him and ruin his career. Arthur can think of one way to save his wealth and career - kill Louise!

But when Arthur's mistress Jackie learns of his intentions, she tells his wife of his dastardly plan and the two make up a plan of their own.

Customer Reviews

It should be noted that this DVD is an extremely poor transfer.
Kona
Would be nice if anyone out there knows where I can get this movie that views like a DVD instead of a bootleg copy.
John Gonzales
Having just gotten around to watching it, I have realized it was an utter waste of my time and money.
Disappointed

Avoid this DVD! As another reviewer said, it's remarkable bad. I wish I'd read his comments before I bought mine. I recommend buying instead a used VHS tape from a rental store. Its quality will be far better than this DVD.
The DVD is a poor transcription of a second- or third-generation videotape. It has the tape's tracking problems. The colors are very weak. It is blurry to the degree that you want to say it has *no* resolution. The audio is terrible. Besides being blurry, we had to adjust our volume control to full volume to be able to hear much of it.

Possibly the most overlooked Anthony Hopkins performance ever. Please check this one out (my favorite DVD find!). He plays multiple roles, in an ala Columbo murder mystery (we-already-know-"who-done-it"). He's a lawyer trying to figure out how to do away with Blythe Danner (his wife). He has Swoozie Kurtz on the side. Hopkins fan, you say? This is an absolute must then, I say.

Before watching "Guilty Conscience", one must first come to terms with the DVD's technical problems. The picture is bad, it looks like a 16th generation VHS tape, not a DVD. The sound is horrid, one must crank the volume way up. It's a TV movie from 1985, so there are Princess Di haircuts, huge shoulder pads, and a rhythm to the admittedly smart dialogue that viewers used to today's television might find strange.
Okay, enough of the bad. The good news is that I liked this movie much more than I ever thought I would. Anthony Hopkins gives a wonderful and inspired performance as Arthur Jameson, a wife-beating, two timing, crooked lawyer who plots to [do away with] his black mailing wife. He is great, and it is always a joy to watch him, especially when he's so YOUNG! His character even says "Quid pro quo", which alone is worth the price of the DVD.
Sir Tony is a delight, and he looks gorgeous.
Since this is the only way I know of to see this good flick, I would recommend it.

I suppose it's a good vehicle for Hopkins, but the DVD version suffers terribly from technical problems. The audio track is weak and the video looks like a twice copied VHS tape. I couldn't get past the poor technical quality to really enjoy the film.

I really enjoy this movie, but have been unable to find a DVD with quality graphics. I have purchased 4 different versions of this movie and all look like they were recorded from a VCR tape. Would be nice if anyone out there knows where I can get this movie that views like a DVD instead of a bootleg copy.

Nearly all the other reviews are right...the transfer copy of this was obviously done off the TV by somebody with a subpar VHS recorder, a low-quality tape and bad editing skills. But beware...at least half a dozen cheap video companies have made their prints from the same inferior master. So don't think buying a different copy with different graphics will make a difference, it won't, it's still the same lousy print. Until a real reputable company (Criterion, Image, etc.) buys it and announces they will be putting this out, any future copies will be as bad as these. That being said, if the quality of your print matters little, then buy it and enjoy the film, it's a great one!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mark Baker HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 24, 2007
Format: DVD
Arthur Jamison (Anthony Hopkins) is a brilliant and successful criminal defense attorney. There's just one problem. His wife (Blythe Danner) has decided to file for divorce and is planning to milk him for all he is worth. Since Arthur doesn't want that, he needs to figure out a way to kill his wife. But, being the attorney he is, he knows that he'd be the first suspect. While he plots various ways to bring about her demise, his mistress (Swoosie Kurtz) shows up unexpectedly. Now what will Arthur do?

This is an interesting little made for TV movie from the mid-80's, made long before any of the stars were a success. It has a bit of a low budget feel, but all three stars do a great job acting. It almost feels like a play since almost all of it takes place in Arthur and Louise's house and these three characters are the only real characters.

The plot is hard to discuss without giving anything away. We get several sequences of Arthur's plots to kill his wife and then the cross examination he images he'll have when the case goes to trial. I was getting a little bored with the movie, but half way through there's a great twist that grabbed my interest for the remainder of the film.

While the movie itself is 5 stars, I had to take a couple off for the DVD transfer. It's absolutely horrid. The picture looks like it is a third of fourth generation VHS recording. The transitions at the original commercial breaks are jarring.

While this is great movie, the DVD is a disappointment. If you must have this movie, go ahead. But be forewarned this is not the quality we normally get these days.
