Double Feature!

U.K. film. 1960s youth-culture movie star David Hemmings plays Tim Brett, a recovering drug addict who has authored a successful book and gets caught up in a mind-bending murder case that's as trippy as the LSD he used to take. Awesome bongo-jazz soundtrack.

A young British author is plunged into a nightmare as he tries to solve his aunt's murder. Frustrated with the lack of progress that the police are making in the murder case, he begins to ask questions of some of her friends. He starts to receive warnings from unknown persons to stop his inquiries. He meets a woman on the train. She hands him a note of supposed comfort, asking him to read it at home. The note turns out to be a warning to leave matters to the police, apparently typed on his own typewriter. There's also an ominous laugh recorded on Tim's own tape recorder, indicating that someone had been in his apartment.

A very interesting plot development device: as the story unfolds the audience is never sure if what they're watching is actually happening. As an audience, we're constantly being shifted back and forth, momentarily convinced that recovering-addict-turned-successful-writer Hemmings is undergoing paranoid delusions, then the next moment convinced there really is a vast conspiracy against him and his investigation into his rich aunt's death. Disturbing and constantly involving, sucking the viewer in until the shocking conclusion. David Hemmings, Gayle Hunnicutt, Wilfrid Hyde-White, Flora Robson, Adolfo Celi, Roland Culver, Daniel Massey, Mona Washbourne, Arthur Lowe.
