Punishingly long and, despite the professionalism on all levels, not especially moving or interesting

Marnie is the character study of a thief and a liar, but what makes her tick remains clouded even after a climax reckoned to be shocking but somewhat missing its point.

...a crazed and lurid character portrait that spends most of its time psychoanalyzing itself.

At once a fascinating study of a sexual relationship and the master's most disappointing film in years.

A worthwhile watch for anyone who's ever enjoyed Hitchcock, but by comparison with his better known stuff it's an example style overtaking substance.

Hitchcock was criticised for bring shallow psychology into the film (Hedren's character is afraid of the colour red) but some of their exchanges - the film was based on a novel by Winston Graham - are sharp and droll.

Marnie's Mama's house is a masterpiece of repressed emotion, a bland domestic space of seemingly placid creams and yellow, rendered in swirling wallpaper and upholstery patterns.

Viewed from the safe distance of four decades after its release, Marnie, perhaps even more than The Birds, emerges as the director's definitive late-period masterpiece.

This messy bit of twisted psychological damage is arguably the most underrated film in Hitchcock's canon (though there's a lot of competition).

It's still thrilling to watch, lush, cool and oddly moving.

Like Hitchcock's best work, there's something gleefully sick going on just under the surface.
