What remains of Laura is not only the ability of the scriptwriters and director to keep the mystery of the film noir but the originality of the dramatic structure and the attempt to delve into the psychological characteristics. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's one of the smartest of all noirs, and thus among the most enticingly savage and dangerous.

Laura (1944) is elegance incarnate in a genre known for its hard edge, the sleekest, silkiest noir of all.

A feverish trance wrapped in a deadpan investigation

Preminger deals in facades, with how perception cheats us, right down to the ideal image of Laura as a portrait. (Cinmathque Annotations on Film)
April 25, 2012
Masterpiece: with time, Preminger's second film has become richer in texture and deeper, more ambiguous in meaning than most noirs of the 1940s.
February 25, 2012
Preminger made darker, more characteristically noir films than this, but his only movie that's as good, or perhaps better, is Anatomy of a Murder.

Will leave you drunk with delight.

The dialogue is stinging and the performances to be savoured in a haunting study of romantic obsession that deserves its return to the big screen.
February 23, 2012
Laura is still every bit as gripping in 2012.
February 23, 2012
A thrilling, absorbing and original example of the genre; it's also beautifully shot, pure escapist entertainment.
February 23, 2012
Not only one of Preminger's greatest, but one of the great noirs.

OK, the plot verges on absurdity - but who cares?
December 20, 2011
Few movies make you feel dirtier, and so perversely grateful for the pleasure.
August 16, 2011
This interesting film noir has more working for its final half than in its first.
February 24, 2010
Expertly paced, gripping, and dripping with sensuality, Otto Preminger's Laura has hardly aged a day.

A highly polished and debonair whodunit.
February 29, 2008
O roteiro , na melhor das hipteses, medocre, mas a direo sombria de Preminger, a msica-tema e as atuaes de Webb e Price transformam este filme em um marco importante do nascente noir.

Great suspense.
