Picks and Pans Review: The Spider and the Fly
USA (Fri., May 13, 9 p.m. ET)
In a clever suspense film, Ted Shackelford and Mel Harris play mystery writers who begin a torrid affair. But one of them, it soon becomes clear, is playing some deadly and convoluted mind games.
That's the only thing that's readily apparent in this enjoyable film, where secrets are rife and suspicion is fickle. Reminiscent of Sleuth, it's a literate mystery with more twists than a knotted old phone extension cord. It gives Shackelford and Harris the best roles they've had in years.
