The Invisible Witness A locked-room mystery with a twist: A young, successful entrepreneur wakes up next to his dead lover and becomes the chief suspect. His defense lawyer’s never lost a case, but can even she help him? Largely told in flashback, this noirish thriller from director Stefano Mordini recreates the days of intrigue that lead up to that fateful night. Characters’ motivations begin to blur until no one is quite who they seem to be, leading to a pulse-pounding conclusion that will leave you guessing until the final shot. (Italy; subtitled; 2020)
