My favorite Hitchcock film, and one of my favorite movies of all time. The acting, the compelling imagery, the beautiful score, all make this a classic. I always show it to women when it seems like we might be entering a relationship so they know exactly what kind of person I am.
Top Notch Hitchcock
this movie was so unbelievably boring with a very predictable ending
This movie just wrecks me every time I watch it. So beautiful and melancholy.
One of the most brilliant and beautiful films ever made.
