Since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I definitely had to watch this flick. Even though it is really highly rated, it is not one of those huge classics like 'North by Northwest', 'Vertigo', 'Psycho' or 'The Birds', at least not in my mind. Anyway, it is an awesome film noir/thriller which is a speciality of the great master. I mean, even though it is more than 60 years old (!), it is still so ... read more

Two strangers meet on a train. What destines to become a small, unmemorable conversation, turns into a chilling, calculating plan about murders and private matters. With the theme of double-crossing in action, Strangers may very well be Alfred Hitchcock's most silently subtle and ambiguous film. The film's antagonist, Bruno S. Anthony, a shirker and a psychopath, meets, in what we assume as a chan... read more

“Two strangers meet on a train. What destines to become a small, unmemorable conversation, turns into a chilling, calculating plan about murders and private matters. With the theme of double-crossing in action, Strangers may very well be Alfred Hitchcock's most silently subtle and ambiguous film. The film's antagonist, Bruno S. Anthony, a shirker and a psychopath, meets, in what we assume as a chance upon, his favourite tennis player the protagonist, Guy Haines. Bruno, apparently read a lot about him, at first unsettles the celebrity, but kinda comforts him down by his smooth talks. The meeting is so smooth, so devoid of stuttering and awkward moments that one thinks Bruno had planned everything out, as noticed by his behaviour when he invites Guy to his private compartment.

" Odd when a movie becomes slightly less interesting at a surface-narrative level, yet more fascinating at sub-textual levels. A third viewing someday down the road will help me sort out where the film fully stands with me. "

A classic

“Since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I definitely had to watch this flick. Even though it is really highly rated, it is not one of those huge classics like 'North by Northwest', 'Vertigo', 'Psycho' or 'The Birds', at least not in my mind. Anyway, it is an awesome film noir/thriller which is a speciality of the great master. I mean, even though it is more than 60 years old (!), it is still so relevant and completely entertaining even nowadays. There is no chases, shootings or explosions but it is just very well directed and written. After watching so many ridiculous and far-fetched modern thrillers, it is so refreshing to see one which is smart, clever and which totally makes sense. The cast is not really made of big stars but it doesn't matter at all since they all delivered some conv” read more

"13.6. Hitchcock taas vaihteeksi Jenkkilän väkivaltaisten mielisairaisuuksien äärellä: tällä kertaa yhdestä ainoasta junakeskustelusta kasvaa erittäin piinallinen ja häiriintynyt tuttavuussuhde. Menestyvä tennispelaaja joutuu armottomaan moraalisten kysymysten ryöpytykseen, eikä selviä niistä täysin vailla tekopyhyyksiä. Siitä huolimatta hänen tuskansa on erittäin samaistuttavaa, sattuupa tässä olemaan siitä syystä yksi naulitsevimmista tennisotteluista ikinä. Kuvallisil"
