Sometimes I watch a film unspool like a tape measure, and I can sense how far we are from the end. Sometimes my imagination is led to live right along with it...This is a real movie, the kind they literally don't make very much anymore."" ""

Like the murder at the heart of this tale, Secret is bound to linger in the memory for years.
