Perhaps without the shock and suspense of subsequent work, this is nevertheless another undoubted masterpiece from the atmospheric film maker, and just as essential.

It is the finest job of direction accomplished by a master director and may justly be called Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece.

There are so many rich interpersonal relationships. This is not a romance or a history, but a bout of delicious Gothic psychoanalysis.

Excellent, but may be too long and moody for kids.

The result exhibits that the director is capable of a range few would credit him with.

A gothic moody piece, there's an overwhelming sense that anything can happen in this film, and anything does. The plot is twisting, unpredictable and even unclear.

Self-consciously prestigious literary filmmaking... more in line with the producer's career than the director's.

Remains one of the Master's most overrated and underrated movies at the same time.

One of the finest productional efforts of the past year.

A real treat. Captivating from its famous opening lines to its pyrotechnic finale, this is one of Hitchcock's finest -- and that's saying something.

It's an elegant production, beautifully photographed and designed like a dream house shrouded in mourning, but it also favors the pictorial over the cinematic and surface over subtext.
