Critical Reception

TIGHTROPE is a decent, though not entirely flawless, dramatic thriller. Clint stars as a hard-nosed detective (does he play any other kind?) trying to figure out who’s behind a string of murders in New Orleans. But these aren’t just any murders, as the female victims were all part of the wonderful world of kinky sex. Our hero’s mean squint gets even squintier when it becomes obvious the women are being targeted because of their kinky relations with him.” – Naylor – IMDB

“Yes, this film is a bit too much on the seedy side for my normal tastes, definitely sordid, but very well done. It’s a story that grabs you early and locks you in all the way.
