A sullen drama from the first scene until the last, anchored by rather sincere performances and conveyed in the sorts of shadows and silence that were the staples of mainstream film noir.

Devoid of any Hitchcockian touches, the movie disappoints only in that it could have been made by any filmmaker experimenting in the faux-documentary style during this period (Jules Dassin comes to mind) -- otherwise, it's gripping material.

Hitchcock's ultimate point evokes cosmic terror: innocence is merely a trick of paperwork, whereas guilt is the human condition.

It's a banner title in Henry Fonda's acting repertoire, and one that works to illustrate Hitchcock's fractured psychoses.

Confined spaces highlight Hitchcock's inversion of his usual fugitive-on-the-run films. (From Hitchcock 101)

Boasting an iconic performance from Henry Fonda in the titular role, this is Hitchcock's most somber film and one of of the bleakest works in film history, which may account for its commercial failure and underappreciated status.

Essentially a crime noir thriller with a twist, Paul McGuigan's film is showy and sharp, whose witty dialogue is delivered with a shrug

Em um de seus trabalhos mais subestimados, Hitchcock cria uma atmosfera angustiante e claustrofóbica a partir de incidentes nada espetaculares, sendo auxiliado pela atuação precisa de Fonda.
| Original Score: 4/5

One of Hitchcock's underrated great films that never got its proper due, put aside by some critics as merely a minor work.

Fine if lower keyed Hitchcock with Fonda as wrongly accused man whose life is wrecked.
| Original Score: 4/5
Doug Cummings
November 8, 2004
A standout piece in Hitchcock's oeuvre and a film that richly deserves its place among the filmmaker's greatest works.

Perhaps the most underrated and least known of Hitchcock's great films.

Hitchcock's shadowy mise-en-scène is given a greater sense of veracity through his use of actual NYC locations.
