Until an exposition flood so mammoth it has cresting waves, "Tell No One" is as eloquent as it is intricate - a superior depiction of crime, corruption, shame and secrecy. A French-language "Fugitive" with wind-sprint intensity and immediacy.

While it's hardly a great film, Tell No One is the rare convoluted thriller that actually makes you want to keep up with its far-fetched twists and turns.

This twisty yarn is meant to leave you as discombobulated as its hero, an innocent man on the run from cops, thugs and killers. Hitchcock would have liked seeing him squirm.

Canet has covered his bases with enough swooping camerawork, narrative smoke-and-mirrors, and quick-sketched supporting characters for a dozen thrillers

Tell No One has shades of Hitchcock's Vertigo -- and not to its detriment. [An] extremely gripping and fascinating suspense film.

Initially complex, the piece's grip loosens with the introduction of a transparent villain, but it remains an entertaining thriller bolstered by Cluzet's appropriately angst-driven performance.

By and large, Tell No One is more interested in telling a knotty story than pondering its meaning, but in those rare deeper moments, Canet evokes how a tragedy can gather around a man and linger there, like a cloud of gnats.

Canet has a good feeling for lowlife atmosphere and he works up a few fine Hitchcockian twirls.

Although it might make your head spin, this case of Vertigo in cyberspace keeps us spellbound.

An absorbing thriller, one that works its narrative complications over a genuinely moving emotional foundation and is spiked with just enough dark humor to keep it from becoming overly serious.

...the pleasures here are more visceral than cerebral or emotional. It's really more of a thrill ride than the sort of art-house talkie you might expect

As brisk as things become, clarity wins out, as the hand-held camerawork Bourne for many a chase sequence has no place here.

Tell No One is a thoroughly absorbing whodunit with more twists and switchbacks than the Le Mans racecourse.

A whodunit so nicely crafted that you're tempted to forgive the Byzantine plot -- hell, you're even tempted to pretend you actually understand its twisting obscurities.

The French thriller Tell No One shows Hollywood how to make a knotty mystery that's both logical and deeply satisfying.

Canet stages some breakneck chases, particularly one where Alex crosses a busy freeway, and corrals an array of fascinating characters to populate this twisty but entirely logical plot.

It's a potboiler -- not groundbreaking or brilliant, but solidly entertaining.
