Quick Review: TIGHTROPE (1984)

Original Theatrical Poster
Dark, compelling psycho-sexual thriller, with Eastwood in a memorably different and edgy role as a cop with twisted sexual tastes, hunting down a serial killer who targets women. Atmospheric, unusual, and full of suspense, this is one of Eastwood's most daring and provocative films. Highly recommended.

N.B. Although Richard Tuggle is credited as writer/director, Eastwood, who produced the film, took over the reins and directed the majority of it.
