  • Lovingly invests in suspense all through the film, banking it in our memory, so that when the final payoff arrives, the whole film has been the thriller equivalent of foreplay. Full Review

  • Witty, suspenseful, sad, funny and wise. Full Review

  • Its appeal, which goes beyond that of other, equally masterly Hitchcock works, remains undiminished. Full Review

  • One of Alfred Hitchcock's inspired audience-participation films: watching it, you feel titillated, horrified, and, ultimately, purged. Full Review

  • A strangely dream-like quality pervades ... and the implication that what's happening up on screen is merely the projection of the protagonist's anxieties. Full Review

  • Hitchcock combines technical and artistic skills in a manner that makes this an unusually good piece of murder mystery entertainment. Full Review
