Few directors are capable of this kind of structural experimentation so late in their careers, and Hitchcock deserves much credit for his audacity.

Tt is a technically accomplished film, and its narrative is robust and complex, even if its destination is ultimately of no great significance.

One of Hitchcock's weaker films, this Cold War espionage tale lacks tension and suspense but it bears some artistic merits, including color scheme.

Topaz tends to move more solidly and less infectiously than many of Alfred Hitchcock's best remembered pix. Yet Hitchcock brings in a full quota of twists and tingling moments.

Not Hitchcock's best work, but Hitchcock nevertheless.

Topaz is not only most entertaining. It is, like so many Hitchcock films, a cautionary fable by one of the most moral cynics of our time.

Prhaps the poorest film of [Hitchcock's] Hollywood career.

At 70, Hitchcock seems suddenly to have forgotten his own recipe.
January 10, 2008
The muddled Samuel Taylor screenplay smelled so bad I wouldn't wrap fish in it.

[Topaz] might appeal to devotees of Le Carré et al, but it certainly doesn't make for dramatically exciting cinema, especially given Hitchcock's flat, seemingly uninterested direction. The bland performances don't help much, either.
