Some movies lose their power the more you see them over the years, but not this one. I've seen it many times, and even though I know the ending it's still gripping every time. It's also quite eerie through-out, thanks to several very atmospheric sequences. Movies of today don't seem to know how to be scary, simply because they just don't take the time necessary to build up tension, or know how to execute it well enough. This brilliant suspense movie shows you exactly how to do it right. It also helps if you have a good cast, and the teaming of Streep and Scheider proved to be pure genius. -Now all MGM must do is letterbox it for its long awaited DVD release !.

This stylish 1982 suspense thriller is now available as a made-to-order DVD-R from MGM/Fox. Director Robert Benton, fresh from his triumph with KRAMER VS. KRAMER, turned his attention to that most popular pastime of modern directors--paying homage to the giants of the past. He directed this film as his tribute to Alfred Hitchcock.

When a randy curator at a Manhattan auction house (Josef Sommer) is murdered, his psychiatrist (Roy Scheider) is drawn into a mysterious plot involving the curator's mistress (Meryl Streep) and various other interested parties, including the police. The shrink soon realizes that he knows too many of the dead man's secrets--and that his own life is now in danger.

STILL OF THE NIGHT has many of the classic elements of Hitchcock: the innocent bystander who must solve the puzzle to clear his own name (and save his own life), the icy blond beauty who may or may not be the killer, and the shadowy Long Island mansion where the clifftop climax takes place. Most of all, we have several examples of Hitch's most distinctive contribution to cinema--the suspense sequence that builds slowly to a payoff. The symbolic dream, the creepy adventure in the basement laundry room, the eerie midnight excursion into Central Park, the unnervingly extended episode at the swanky auction house where the hero desperately tries to deflect the authorities who are closing in--these are pure Hitchcock, and Benton is better than most at making these classic ideas seem fresh and immediate.

I saw this movie years ago, forgot the name, and have been looking for it ever since. If you like a good old scary suspense movie with characters you care about this is for you.It is a movie that is better than the sum of it's parts and they are darned good. For once I really couldn't tell if she was bad or not, but I'm not telling!

Who cares if this movie is supposed to be no good! I've seen it a couple of times and I find it mysterious, moody, visually lush and interesting, and suspenseful. And I can't remember when Scheider was better (except, maybe, in JAWS). Don't let Maltin's review scare you off this one -- I think it is a great rainy-Saturday-afternoon movie.

I have seen many reviews for this comparing it to Hitchcock, but for me, I let it stand on its own. It was a film that was shown late one night on UK television and I loved every minute of it.

I will not say anything about the plot, just that it's an intriguing murder mystery with some nice touches and Roy Schieder must be one proud actor to hav such a little known effort like this in his reportoire. Meryl Streep provides the glamour and the mystery and her performance is simply stunning and a joy to watch. She also, I think for the first and only time to my knowledge, appears in the nude, but from a distance. She has a lovely figure and a cute rear end, which I think she should have showed off more often, so it is definitely adult entertainment, but also a classic whodunnit in the greatest tradition. Difficult to get hold of though, I had to get the Australian edition, but now there's this release too, which I'm guessing is the US edition. Do yourselves a favour, get a copy and treat yourself to a great whodunnit and enjoy the beautiful Ms Streep in the buff too!

This is a terrific little suspense thriller that's just waiting for rediscovery on DVD. Director Robert Benton, fresh from his triumph with KRAMER VS. KRAMER, turned his attention to that most popular pastime of modern directors--paying homage to the giants of the past. He directed this 1982 film as his tribute to Alfred Hitchcock.

STILL OF THE NIGHT has all the classic elements of Hitchcock--the murder investigation, the innocent bystander (Roy Scheider) who must solve the puzzle to clear his own name (and save his own life), the icy blond beauty (Meryl Streep) who may or may not be the killer, the creepy Long Island mansion where the clifftop climax takes place. Most of all, we have several examples of Hitch's most distinctive contribution to cinema--the suspense sequence that builds slowly to a payoff. The symbolic dream, the adventure in the creepy basement laundry room, the eerie midnight excursion into Central Park, the long section at the swanky auction house with the hero desperately trying to deflect the authorities who are closing in--these are pure Hitchcock, and Benton is better than most at making these classic ideas seem fresh and immediate.

What strikes me most strongly about SOTN is the loving care and dedication of everyone involved in the project, not just the direction and writing (Benton and David Newman) but the cinematography (Nestor Almendros), music (Broadway composer John Kander), and even the costumes (Albert Wolsky). And that cast can't be beat, from the glamorous stars right down to the extras. If you love Hitch as much as I do, give this film a look. And Fox Home Video really, really should put it on DVD (they own the MGM/UA library now, and the rights to this movie). Join me in letting Fox know that.
