Let's start off on a positive: At least it has a good script.
But apart from that, everything else about Guilty Conscience is pretty poor. It tells the story of a husband (Anthony Hopkins) who is having an affair, and thinking about killing his wife.
Fans of Sir Hopkins may appreciate this film, and possibly enjoy it, but mostly it is dull and cliched.
The stroyline is more suited to a play on stage than a film, because it all takes place in one house, apart from a few scenes outdoors. The camera is also so still, that you may as well have been watching it from the stalls and it wouldn't look any different. The camera also seemes to be out of focus, or maybe the DVD quality wasn't too good, because it was quite fuzzy around the edges of objects.
The dialogue is quite wordy, so kudos to the actors for managing to spit it out, and turn the story into something digestible. It's a bit of a con, as most of the film takes place inside Hopkin's head, as different scenarios he thinks of are played out. It does leave you with a few twists, so this is not a wasted viewing, but it certainly isn't highly original.
AS I've already stated, Hopkin's fans may enjoy this more than others, but don't expect Silence of the Lambs quality.
