In The Other Man, Liam Neeson lends his volcanic authority to an elegant psychological thriller. When Peter (Neeson) discovers evidence of an affair on his wife's laptop, he tracks down the other man (Antonio Banderas) in Milan and stalks him. But though there are taut moments of suspense, the movie's emphasis is on watching Peter's mind unravel and seeing the damage this does to his daughter Abigail (Romola Garai, I Capture the Castle, perfectly cast as the child of Neeson and Laura Linney, who plays the wife). The movie suffers from some confusing editing and a few implausibilities, but the main reason it languishes in obscurity is that it defies the usual expectations of a thriller--which is the main reason it's worth seeing. Banderas turns out to have secrets of his own, and the conclusion takes a surprising (and delicately moving) turn. If director Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal) had had a slightly firmer grasp on the story line, this could have been a fascinating case study; as it is, it's intriguing but fails to fully satisfy. Neeson is, as ever, compelling--he's able to turn from understated obsession to ferocious outburst in a heartbeat. --Bret Fetzer
