Branagh's lame stab at a romantic psychological thriller makes no sense.

A miscalculation from a prodigious talent who has forgotten that you squeeze the life out of romance when you don't give it space to breathe.

Overwrought and overly facile look at accounts payable in the afterlife.

The mixture of gritty noir and supernatural shenanigans sits uneasily, but the film may simply be too bizarre to work at all.

Branagh's contemporary American accent is annoying, and the film's constant inter-cutting of past and present lives becomes laughable.

I am a particular pushover for movies like this, movies that could go on the same list with Rebecca, Wuthering Heights or Vertigo.

An achievement that rivals Hitchcock's best work and stands out as one of the most intriguing and memorable thrillers of the 1990s.

Kenneth Branagh's valentine to Alfred Hitchcock is too clever for its own good.

Branagh's noir homage is a truly great thriller. One of 1991's best.

It's a restless yet highly organized effort, displaying the director's desire to not just passively assemble a movie, but to rattle the senses as well.

As the twists come thick and fast and the plot gets progressively more and more baroque, Branagh shows himself to be at least as intelligent as Brian De Palma in delivering over-the-top stylistic filigree.
