There's no mincing words here: NOTORIOUS is badly dated.

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.

A nearly flawless espionage thriller that has been mimicked many times since, but never equaled.

Production and directorial skill of Alfred Hitchcock combine with a suspenseful story and excellent performances to make Notorious force entertainment.

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.

There is also, of course, virtuoso direction from the master.

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.

Stunning, smooth Hitchcock thriller benefits from Cary and Ingrid.
| Original Score: 5/5
