Blood Relatives - 1978 *
Of all the Chabrol films I have seen, I'm pretty sure that this is the worst. It's so unlike anything else that he has done, and maybe that's why I couldn't get my head around it. Donald Sutherland is usually quite an interesting presence in the film world, but I didn't connect much with his performance here. Obviously the fact that it is not a French film in french set in France probably has something to do with it, and I don't begrudge Chabrol for edging out of his comfort zone, but I really hope the next one of his that I see isn't like this, as it may halt my quest to watch every one of his films.
