Like Lynch's fever-dream of transcendental perversity Blue Velvet, Shadow of a Doubt is about awakening, the simultaneous darkening and enlarging of the world.

Peels back the welcoming warmth and sincere innocence of small-town life to reveal the gullibility and the na´vetÚ underneath; it's a fiction about the perpetuation of fictions.

This thriller's horrible fascination lies in watching the strong-willed young lady's admiration of, fondness for, and idealization of a supposed gentleman clot and curdle. The plot's marred only by a slightly rushed and convenient ending.

If the motives of filmmakers are revealed in the frames of their more obscure pictures, then 'Shadow of a Doubt' is a resounding testament to the power of Alfred Hitchcock's vast creative engine.
