[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.

Hitchcock's notorious reliance on stock footage and his affection for blue screening rather than adding veracity or contributing to the artifice of the filmmaking process, make it seem like his heart isn't really in it.

The muddled Samuel Taylor screenplay smelled so bad I wouldn't wrap fish in it.

At 70, Hitchcock seems suddenly to have forgotten his own recipe.

Not Hitchcock's best work, but Hitchcock nevertheless.

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 Alfred Hitchcock at his best.

December 20, 2011
It is a technically accomplished film, and its narrative is robust and complex, even if its destination is ultimately of no great significance.
October 16, 2004
Rather tedious Hitchcock, but still heads above most suspensers.
