Audience Reviews for Criss Cross

  • Nov 04, 2011
    Wonderful fatalistic film noir by Robert Siodmak. The mood is perfect and aided by an excellent black-and-white cinematography. Excellent performances too!

    Criss-Cross is excellent on every technical aspect, has a story that's interesting enough, and so much star material that anyone can still sit down and watch it today, 63 years after it was originally conceived. What really shines through, though, is not the story, or the characters, but Robert Siodmak's great eye, from the interplay of shadows on the wall of Steve's favorite hangout pub, to the last second of the film, a tableu vivant of the two protagonists entangled in death, just like they did in life. Awesome!

    I'd like to see this movie again, it was interesting and exciting, I liked it, but I can't remember it very vividly.

    Tough, dark noir. Good performances by experts in the genre. Yvonne De Carlo is breathtakingly beautiful here and gives a fine account of a heartless shrew. Keep an eye out for Tony Curtis dancing with her in one scene.
