Bunny Lake Is Missing

Mood piece disguised as a Hitchcock-like thriller. Mostly preposterous but with nicely restrained performed throughout except for Noel Coward who was completely off the leash. Counter-sense score was grating and possibly genius but certainly distracting. If I had seen this before working with a variety of English-folk I would have assumed that the deadpan, off-putting, rabbity milieu was some kind of stagy put-on. Now I know better and certain parts of the show come off a bit like documentary.
