The Girl Reviews

There's little forward momentum in The Girl. It's just the dramatization of one humiliation after another.

It looks gorgeous, with lush production values and gorgeous cinematography, but there's a strange inertness at the film's core.

You need to know that Hitchcock was a real-life Famous Artist in order for the drama, not to say the creepiness, to fully take effect. Otherwise, this is just the story of a sadistic sad old man and the young woman who escapes his clutches.

Miller's Hedren is cool, distant, humorless, whiny and reproving. She's the perfect block of ice.

The Girl may make movie lovers want to screen The Birds and Marnie again, perhaps seeing Hedren's performances in a new light through the eyes of the obsessed director.

If you approach The Girl as a sliver, and don't expect a full serving, you are more apt to appreciate it.

The fatal flaw in the entire project isn't Gwyneth Hughes' serviceable script but Julian Jarrold's just plain creepy direction.

The trouble with The Girl is that it tries to psychoanalyze Hitchcock but fails by trying to know the man too much.

Superb performances by Toby Jones as Hitchcock and Sienna Miller as Hedren keep the story alive and moving.
