Thursday Movie Picks: Amateur Sleuths
This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is all about those amateur sleuths. This was actually kind of hard for me, because I could only think of one movie right off the bat. I kept thinking of TV shows instead. I may have to reach a bit, but here's what I came up with.
1) Harriet The Spy - This is the one that came to mind immediately. I loved this movie when I was a kid. I have memories of my friends and I out playing in the summer, pretending to be Harriet, using compact mirrors to spy on random people and writing down mundane things in our notebooks.
2) Rear Window - Jeff is a photographer, but he turns into somewhat of an amateur sleuth when he eavesdrops on his neighbor who he thinks has committed a murder.
3) In The Fade - In this German film, Katja loses her family to a terrorist attack, and when she doesn't like the outcome of the trial she begins following the person who did it to carry out her own revenge. Diane Kruger is amazing in this movie.
