There's no mincing words here: NOTORIOUS is badly dated.
July 17, 2017
One of the film's greatest ironies is that it is one of the muddiest of Hitchcock's films to interpret.
January 1, 2000
Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious is the most elegant expression of the master's visual style, just as Vertigo is the fullest expression of his obsessions.

February 13, 2009
A nearly flawless espionage thriller that has been mimicked many times since, but never equaled.
February 23, 2012
Production and directorial skill of Alfred Hitchcock combine with a suspenseful story and excellent performances to make Notorious force entertainment.
January 16, 2009
It's the accuracy, efficiency and control of Hitchcock's direction that most impress. They enable him to dovetail the film's thriller format and romantic story to dizzying, expressive and unique effect.

Shimmering and stealthy in its violence, Notorious is Hitchcock's best of the 1940s.

as much of a romance as it is a spy thriller

Romantic melodrama. If contemporary viewers think of "Notorious" in those terms, it will still strike them as the classic it's become.

It would be far too harsh to label Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious an all-out bomb, but it's equally difficult to refer to the movie as a wholeheartedly effective (and affecting) success.

January 1, 2000
There is also, of course, virtuoso direction from the master.
January 16, 2009
Hitchcock's classic 1946 thriller Notorious is a terrific romantic tango between Ingrid Bergman's exotic and spicy socialite and Cary Grant's prim and proper American spy. It's also shameless war propaganda.

Notorious is in the world of film noir but not of it; it's a tough and dark film that's also one of the finest women's pictures ever made.
