#853 The Naked Face (1984)

Based on the 1970 Sidney Sheldon novel of the same name, The Naked Face is your pretty standard thriller fare. Roger Moore plays a psychiatrist that gets tangled in a murder plot where his patients and subordinates are getting killed, leaving him the prime suspect.

The movie looks and feels old beyond its years – and honestly isn’t anything to write to home about – but it still manages to create a good kind of whodunnit vibe to it that makes it an easy watch movie. Although this is not a perfect vehicle for Moore, he proves to have plenty of charism to carry through a full length feature film.

The Naked Face was heading for a solid low 70 score, but the idiotic and totally unnecessary last minute plot twist spoiled the show for me.
