Eyewitness (1981)


New York City custodian Daryll Deever is a big fan of local news reporter Tony Sokolow, so he is intrigued when she shows up to cover a story at his workplace. There’s been a murder in the office building, and Tony suspects that Daryll may have insight into the crime, a notion that he furthers to stay close to her. However, when those behind the killing begin to think that Daryll really knows something, they target both him and Tony to keep their secrets hidden.

    Absolutely a fanatic for this movie back in the day. David Denby of New York Magazine said it was “splendid.” I remember that word after all these years. But the movie disappeared without a trace and is now on Rarefilmm.com. Watch this movie!
