September 9, 2003
For his directorial debut, Clint Eastwood opted to make this relatively straightforward but hopelessly dated Fatal Attraction clone (er, precursor).
| Original Score: 3/5
March 15, 2004
Em seu filme de estréia como diretor, Eastwood troca a tensão pelo susto fácil a partir da segunda metade da trama, errando ainda no longo e embaraçoso 'interlúdio musical'.
| Original Score: 3/5
December 9, 2005
Un suspense qui profita abondamment de la largesse d'esprit du cinéma américain de l'époque, peut-être même un peu trop...

I think the fault lies with Clint Eastwood the director, who has made too many easy decisions about events, about the management of atmosphere, about the treatment of performances.

There is no purpose to a suspense thriller, I suppose, except to involve us, scare us, to give us moments of vicarious terror. Play Misty for Me does that with an almost cruel efficiency.

Early Clint behind the camera shows the promise to come.

Clint Eastwood's first film as a director, and first investigation into the anxiety at the root of the Eastwood persona
November 1, 2001
Aside from a few music-intensive segments that go on far too long, the story moves along at a brisk clip and there are a handful of good jolts along the way.

As syrupy as it plays at times, it did spawn the genre of Obsessed Stalker movies, and showed the first signs that Eastwood could do more than act.
| Original Score: 3/5
April 9, 2007
Clint's direction is sometimes shaky but usually assured, and he gets a bold performance from Jessica Walter.

Eastwood's imperfect debut movie is a thiller full of personality and zest.
| Original Score: 3/5
July 30, 2009
Eastwood's camera is rarely misplaced, and he shows a talent for the thriller genre worthy of a comparison to Hitchcock.
February 9, 2006
A highly enjoyable thriller.
August 30, 2009
Eastwood displays a vigorous talent for sequences of violence and tension. He has obviously seen Psycho and Repulsion more than once, but those are excellent texts and he has learned his lessons passing well.
April 8, 2008
For that 80% of the film which constitutes the story, the structure and dialog create a mood of nervous terror which the other 20% nearly blows away.
