Is Anybody There?


Michael Caine loves to work, all the time. Sometimes this leads him into projects he might have better left alone. This might be one of them. I say might, because we bailed out at about the halfway mark. It’s not that the movie was awful, or that Caine’s performance was bad; offhand, I can’t think of a bad performance by Maurice Micklewhite (his real name, and as good a reason for changing one’s name as I’ve ever come across). It’s just that sometimes a movie fails to connect, and this one didn’t. So don’t take this as a bad review. A lot of people liked it. Maybe you will, too.
