Death Watch Review

Image for Death Watch

A camera is implanted in Roddy's (Harvey Keitel) brain as he is hired by a TV producer to record a terminally ill patient (Romy Schneider) without her knowledge.


This take on DG Compton's novel is set in a sickness-free future that anticipates the shoddiness of reality TV. Romy Schneider and Harvey Keitel excel, but the fury at media sensationalism loses focus.

Prescient, but too diffuse to hit home.
