This very concentration upon detail and upon the concrete mechanics of the plan has thrown the whole drama into the character of a passionless action film.

Never for a moment a dull movie, Strangers is often too facile or too far away from strict artistic honesty. Coming from the man who made Treasure of the Sierra Madre, it is a disappointment.

Even though it dissipates its serious political theme with too much mechanical detail, the film is still tense and atmospheric.

The stark claustrophobia of the compositions is continuously goosed by urgent surrealism

In We Were Strangers, John Huston has come up with a finished job of directing that edges close to his best films.

An exciting melodrama -- well acted, with the background reality lost in history.

Huston's follow-up to The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Key Largo doesn't rank with either of those classics but is certainly entertaining in its own right.
