It’s the matryoshka doll of B movies. “Mute Witness” is a 1995 slasher movie filmed on location in Russia about a slasher movie filmed on location in Russia that stumbles upon a snuff movie filmed on location in Russia. A hint of noir is supplied by the fact that our perky American protagonist is mute (thus the title). Longtime Russian actress Marina Zudina plays the perky American, while longtime British actress Fay Ripley plays her not as perky sister. Alec Guinness briefly appears in an uncredited role. It was his last film. He didn’t exactly leave on a high note.
