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. (Cinémathèque Annotations on Film)

Masterpiece: with time, Preminger's second film has become richer in texture and deeper, more ambiguous in meaning than most noirs of the 1940s.

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.

Laura is still every bit as gripping in 2012.

A thrilling, absorbing and original example of the genre; it's also beautifully shot, pure escapist entertainment.

Not only one of Preminger's greatest, but one of the great noirs.

OK, the plot verges on absurdity - but who cares?

Few movies make you feel dirtier, and so perversely grateful for the pleasure.

This interesting film noir has more working for its final half than in its first.

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 é, na melhor das hipóteses, medíocre, mas a direção sombria de Preminger, a música-tema e as atuações de Webb e Price transformam este filme em um marco importante do nascente noir.
| Original Score: 4/5

Great suspense.

October 23, 2007
Less a crime film than a study in levels of obsession, Laura is one of those classic works that leave their subject matter behind and live on the strength of their seductive style.
October 23, 2007
A hypnotic and deathlessly interpretable experience.
