The gritty, forgotten Hitchcock masterpiece
A fine return to form after a string of misses. Not his best but Hitchcock's experience and skill make this worth watching.
A great love letter from hitchcock to London. Slow start, but by the end you’re on the edge of your seat. He still had it in his old age.
Very British in its style and content, reminds of Hitch's early films but with sex. Not as dazzling as his masterpieces, but has its moments
Hitchcock still had it in him near the end of his career
Alfred Hitchcock does it again with a well written beautifully acted and directed in his unique style.
Completely underrated. Please make the effort and watch it.
Dark and frightening Hitchcock film that was more explicit than it needed to be. There’s one deeply disturbing scene with only implications.
Hitchcock thrillers are always a good choice! Great plot, even if it has unrealistic strangling scenes.
A „classic“ Hitchcock. Suspenseful, special story and unique characters. Still it lacks some of his other crime stories
