Strangers on a Train Reviews


TIME Magazine
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Winds up with a scene in which a merry-go-round goes wild, spins like a pin wheel, and crashes in a gaudy blaze of explosions that no earthly carrousel could touch off. The movie itself is the same way: implausible but intriguing and great fun to ride.

Perhaps Strangers on a Train still hasn't yielded all its secrets.

Hitchcock erects a web of guilt around Granger, who 'agreed' to his wife's murder, a murder that suits him very well, and structures his film around a series of set pieces, ending with a paroxysm of violence on a circus carousel.

Hitchcock was above all the master of great visual set pieces, and there are several famous sequences in Strangers on a Train.

Given a good basis for a thriller in the Patricia Highsmith novel and a first-rate script, Hitchcock embroiders the plot into a gripping, palm-sweating piece of suspense.

...his basic premise of fear fired by menace is so thin and so utterly unconvincing that the story just does not stand.
