Strange, richly told tale, full of echoes of Hitchcock themes.
September 21, 2015
Psychologically resonant, visually transcendent ...
August 31, 2014
Hitchcock was criticised for bring shallow psychology into the film (Hedren's character is afraid of the colour red) but some of their exchanges - the film was based on a novel by Winston Graham - are sharp and droll.

Unfortunately, Marnie was released right after the masterpiece The Birds and comparisons were inevitable, but there's so much to admire about this work, textually, dramatically, visually.

March 20, 2012
A worthwhile watch for anyone who's ever enjoyed Hitchcock, but by comparison with his better known stuff it's an example style overtaking substance.
March 20, 2012
This remains a compelling Hitchcock thriller but it's Tippi Hedron's remarkable central performance which steals the show.

A masterpiece of psychological mystery that encompasses all of the director's obsessions.

March 20, 2012
Universally despised on its first release, Marnie remains one of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest and darkest achievements.
December 16, 2011
Marnie's Mama's house is a masterpiece of repressed emotion, a bland domestic space of seemingly placid creams and yellow, rendered in swirling wallpaper and upholstery patterns.
November 19, 2010
...a crazed and lurid character portrait that spends most of its time psychoanalyzing itself.

September 12, 2008
Marnie is the character study of a thief and a liar, but what makes her tick remains clouded even after a climax reckoned to be shocking but somewhat missing its point.
July 14, 2008
A savory failure from the Master.
| Original Score: 3/5
May 16, 2008
This messy bit of twisted psychological damage is arguably the most underrated film in Hitchcock's canon (though there's a lot of competition).

Punishingly long and, despite the professionalism on all levels, not especially moving or interesting
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 17, 2006
Viewed from the safe distance of four decades after its release, Marnie, perhaps even more than The Birds, emerges as the director's definitive late-period masterpiece.

February 9, 2006
It's still thrilling to watch, lush, cool and oddly moving.
September 17, 2003
Not Hitch's best, but still incredible.
