Lady in a Cage back to product details

Now I Know What "Panic Room" Ripped Off

Take "Lady In A Cage" and throw in a cute kid, loud explosions, and more violence and you've got "Panic Room." But the irony is that, for all its over-the-top dramatics and social commentary, "Lady In A Cage" is a better film. Too disturbing to be easily dismissed, this film ends with a half hour of pure tension that will drive you up the wall. Director Walter Grauman previously directed several episodes of "The Twilight Zone"; if you watch the film from that angle, you're on the right track. It's a tightly wound parable, a morality play. Ms. de Havilland has several juicy lines and James Caan is almost unbearably (forgive the pun; watch the movie and you'll know what I mean) repulsive. The remastered soundtrack is so sharp it's almost shocking! This would make an awesome double bill with "Targets."
