January 16, 2009
A glorious exercise in film style, where virtuoso camerawork combines with the characters to create a wonderful harmony of visuals and narrative -- and where the complexities of character and story exist above and beyond the dictates of genre.

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.
January 16, 2009
Notorious has fascinating echoes of other Hitchcock movies such as Rebecca and Psycho. A must-see or must-see-again.
March 16, 2007
One of Hitchcock's best

Shimmering and stealthy in its violence, Notorious is Hitchcock's best of the 1940s.
March 10, 2003
Bergman and Grant sizzle in this espionage tale written by Ben Hecht.

Occasionally too slow, but compelling

The suspense builds continually, operating on multi-layers...
November 6, 2001
Alfred Hitchcock's most openly sensual film.

the best of Alfred Hitchcock's espionage thrillers and one the strongest works of his extensive cinematic career
October 23, 2001
This is one of Hitchcock's best films.

A top-rate film noir.
January 1, 2000
If Rear Window was brilliant because of how deep it was, and Vertigo was brilliant for how existential it was, Notorious is brilliant because of how simple it is.
January 1, 2000
This brilliant Hitchcock offering combines romance, suspense, and international intrigue with unforgettable performances from Grant and Bergman.
January 1, 2000
There is also, of course, virtuoso direction from the master.
January 1, 2000
Gorgeously shot in luminous monochrome, it's all wrapped up with an extremely suspenseful last reel.
