Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

The plot is deliberately perfunctory, the people deliciously perverse, and the mise-en-scène radical.

A camp classic of a very particular variety.

Classic in the true sense with great theme music to boot.

A classic noir romance where all of the cinematic elements fit together perfectly.

Just watching Clifton Webb's deliciously nasty performance, as the effete critic and Laura's mentor, delivering the film's best lines, is worth the price of admission

| Original Score: 5/5

Combustible Celluloid

This kooky film noir is so beautifully directed by Otto Preminger that all its protruding elements seem to slide delicately and accurately into place.

Reno Gazette-Journal

At times, the plotting takes leaps that the film's 87-minute run doesn't adequately support; but overall this is a gem.

| Original Score: B+

...slightly overrated...

Creative Loafing

A genuine classic -- not only of film noir but of film, period -- director Otto Preminger's adaptation of Vera Caspary's novel lathers the murder-mystery with a heavy dollop of kinkiness.

Movie Metropolis

The story is a good whodunnit, although it probably isn't half as clever as a mystery as it is a character study.

Slant Magazine

A masterfully complex -- and frequently campy -- portrait of all-consuming romantic self-delusion.

A great antidote to the 'old movies are no fun' attitude many people slip into as soon as they learn a film is in black and white.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A classic. Clifton Webb is a delight; Tierney never looked lovelier. And its score is unforgettable. One to watch.

| Original Score: 4/5

Christopher Null

A classic thriller/whodunit of the 1940s. Unfortunately, it remains solidly in the past.

Moira Sullivan
FilmFestivals.com

A classic murder film worth seeing over and over.

Did Hollywood ever produce a more seductive mystery or a creepier romance? I wouldn't change a line, a frame, or a performance in this film.

The picture on the whole is close to being a top-drawer mystery.

Classic mystery, notable for its plot and performances

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The materials of a B-grade crime potboiler are redeemed by Waldo Lydecker, walking through every scene as if afraid to step in something.
