Critic Reviews for The Mask of Dimitrios
Romanian-born ex-painter Negulesco aims for sophistication with Hitchcockian banter between rivals -- Lorre and perennially suspicious Sydney Greenstreet -- and a crafty Wellesian figure of hearsay in Dimitrios.
"The Mask of Dimitrios" may get bogged down with its storytelling structure, but don't let that keep you from enjoying yet another amazing encounter between Greenstreet and Lorre.
