Adept at using cinema for art and entertainment since his early career, Lang treats this Graham Greene "entertainment" in modest, yet effective fashion.
| Original Score: 9/10
This is not Lang's best film of the era, or even his most interesting portrait of paranoia and malevolent forces, but it is a lively thriller with unexpected turns.
The film as a whole doesn't really stick with you, but isolated moments and images do
| Original Score: 3/4
It's not top-shelf Fritz Lang, nor is it top-level Graham Greene, but as an exercise in World War II intrigue with a smidgen of film noir thrown in, Ministry of Fear gets the job done.
It's certainly fitting that after filling his German years with ballsy, predictive masterpieces about Nazi rule-by-fear, Fritz Lang would finally make a film that directly involves Nazis.
| Original Score: 54/100
Visually brilliant masterpiece.
Really good Fritz Lang noir that's never gotten its due
| Original Score: 4/5
Has an exciting plot and is properly atmospheric despite its cheap studio sets.
| Original Score: B-
