Brilliantly stylized crime thriller.
Channeling the spirit of the Russians (Eisenstein, Dovshenko, Vertov), the director uses grotesque angles, close-ups, and rhythms to suggest a powerful sense of seduction and torture.
Superior, stylish thriller marred by an obvious and over-the-top "mystery" killer
| Original Score: 4/5
The Phantom Lady proved to be a boon to the German-born director Robert Siodmak's career.
