      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Donald Sutherland is coolly commanding and Jane Fonda a force of nature in Klute, a cuttingly intelligent thriller that generates its most agonizing tension from its stars' repartee.

      Dave Kehr Chicago Reader As close to a classic as anything New Hollywood produced. Feb 18, 2020 Full Review David Robinson Financial Times What lifts it above its B-picture origins (and the pastiche is certainly conscious) is the style -- crisp, elliptical, only moderately arty -- of Alan J. Pakula's direction. Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Derek Malcolm Guardian This is done with remarkably little dialogue but with a tremendous sense of tension and atmosphere. Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Dave Giannini InSession Film In cinema, thankfully, there are no absolutes and no easy answers. Sure, there are generalities but a great film, especially with a transcendent performance, can take those rules and tear them into a million pieces. Feb 21, 2024 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand It’s a cliché, but they simply don’t make thrillers like this anymore: smart, sharp, adult. Aug 19, 2023 Full Review Andrea Thompson The Spool That it succeeds is mostly due to Fonda. Calling her performance powerhouse would be a grand understatement.

      ed m This hasn't aged well. Slow. No real pay off. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/16/24 Full Review Alec B The romance is a little unconvincing, but I like that the mystery/thriller stuff comes to a pretty believable conclusion. This is the perfect role for Fonda, allowing her to be both tough and vulnerable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Jelisije J A man tries to discover the secret of his missing friend and realizes he is in a web of mystery, murder, and love. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/01/23 Full Review Isaiah Y Well directed film featuring Jane Fonda's greatest performance Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review David F While the atmosphere of paranoia and suspense was nicely developed, the suspense and tawdriness didn't add up to a great movie, unfortunately. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/29/23 Full Review TheFilmReviewer 1 While it's the lowest film in terms of ranking in Alan J. Pakula's Paranoia Trilogy, that says nothing to the grittiness that Pakula and Jane Fonda provide in this haunting film. Donald Sutherland offers some consideration, but it's Jane Fonda's film for the most part. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
