The Seven-Per-Cent Solution – 1976 Herbert Ross

  Ross is not a great artist but he made 6 archiveable films, including this one, between 1972 and 1981 Strong performances from V. Redgrave, Arkin (playing Freud), Olivier in supporting turns The set designs are attractive- some really nice shots of Vienna I’m not 100% on Duvall’s English accent (he plays Watson)- I couldn’t tell if it was actually bad or just distracting seeing him when you’ve mostly been used to his southern drawl for so long The coke scenes aren’t exactly easy rider or midnight cowboy drug montages but still- again- solid Entertaining and smart film Not
