    Frank Langella's note-perfect, tour-de-force turn as a man elegantly shaping his own demise is nicely counterpointed by a shambling Elliott Gould as a bird-watching private eye.
  2. The resulting cat-and-mouse game -- occupies most of the film's running time, to gradually diminishing results.

    The Caller begins as a multinational corporate thriller more ambiguous and geopolitically senseless than "Demonlover."
  4. Turns into an impenetrable essay on guilt, memory and the fear of death that even Mr. Langella's gravity cannot salvage.
  5. 25
    The Caller qualifies as something of a Holocaust movie, with flashbacks to World War II France. Guess who the two boys we see grow up to be?

    Well acted but what a slow moving movie. Not too many thrills in this thriller. It's well acted and the story's premise is good, Well acted but what a slow moving movie.
