Writing Elsewhere: With a Friend Like Harry (2000) for Crooked Marquee

This week I wrote about the slow-burn French thriller With a Friend Like Harry (2000) for the film site Crooked Marquee. It's an interesting movie, because while it is in many ways a throwback to Hitchcock-style suspense, it has a lot of timely things to say about the way money can give one a sense of unearned power. You can read my take on this marvelous, unjustly forgotten film here.


  1. Whoa! This sounds intense and fabulous. I'll have to give it a go.

  2. I've always been surprised that this film faded away as it has. It's so well-constructed and suspenseful!
