Canet has covered his bases with enough swooping camerawork, narrative smoke-and-mirrors, and quick-sketched supporting characters for a dozen thrillers

Canet has a good feeling for lowlife atmosphere and he works up a few fine Hitchcockian twirls.

By and large, Tell No One is more interested in telling a knotty story than pondering its meaning, but in those rare deeper moments, Canet evokes how a tragedy can gather around a man and linger there, like a cloud of gnats.

Although it might make your head spin, this case of Vertigo in cyberspace keeps us spellbound.

Tell No One is a thoroughly absorbing whodunit with more twists and switchbacks than the Le Mans racecourse.

A whodunit so nicely crafted that you're tempted to forgive the Byzantine plot -- hell, you're even tempted to pretend you actually understand its twisting obscurities.

These classy people are put to the trashiest ends, and, for the most part, it's a pleasure to see them rooting around in the garbage.

Tell No One is a classic modern-Hollywood thriller, a movie with a layered murder mystery, a frame-up, gangsters, conspiracies and one dazzling chase.

Cluzet's brooding performance propels the movie, and writer-director Guillaume Canet...skillfully orchestrates the cascading revelations.

Tell No One darts its way past all the improbabilities and clichà (C)s that weigh down most mysteries, shooting toward a conclusion that's both endearingly old-fashioned and satisfying.

The story becomes so convoluted and contrived (pursued by police, Alex just happens to run into a patient's father, who owes the doctor a big favor) that much of the tension dissipates.

It attempts no improvements on the basic suspense formula. It just does everything really well: perfect pacing, lovely camera work, spot-on acting and an ingenious plot.

There will be times you think it's too perplexing, when you're sure you're witnessing loose ends. It has been devised that way, and the director knows what he's doing. Even when it's baffling, it's never boring.

Under the direction of Guillaume Canet, who adapted Harlan Coben's English-language best seller with Philippe Lefebvre, this is a splendid ensemble doing its level best to keep the audience guessing all the way through an increasingly knotty narrative.

I haven't enjoyed so much pleasurably intrigue-laden suspense in ages, and it is charismatically acted, too.

Among the movieâ(TM)s many delights are the fluctuating rhythms of its pacing, an atmospheric volatility that sets off the doctorâ(TM)s blooming paranoia against his sunlit, leafy surroundings, and a terrific cast.

Tell everyone about Tell No One. Not just because this is a top-notch thriller so twisty you may forget to breathe, but because for a long time it looked like you wouldn't be able to tell anyone at all.

Guillaume Canet's delicious contemporary thriller Tell No One is Vertigo meets The Fugitive by way of The Big Sleep. That is meant as high praise.

Thrillers aren't always so thrilling, but Tell No One is -- and absorbing, sometimes perplexing and often stirring as well.

We know the material is artificially -- even deviously -- constructed, and we enjoy being manipulated by people who know what they're doing. But it's Cluzet's intense performance that makes this genre piece a heart-wrenching experience.

This smash-hit French thriller starts slowly -- and builds into a sharp action flick, though an overload of plot twists threatens to bog things down midway through.

Christophe Offenstein's fluid camera tracks the action well enough, but any pretence to subtlety or sophistication seems lost in translation.
