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 was 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

Description: En route from Washington D.C., champion tennis player Guy Haines (Farley Granger) meets pushy playboy Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker). What begins as a chance encounter turns into a series of morbid confrontations, as Bruno manipulates his way into Guy's life. Bruno is eager to kill his father and knows Guy wants to marry a senator's daughter (Ruth Roman) but cannot get a divorce from his wife, Miriam (Laura Elliot). So Bruno suggests the men swap murders, which would leave no traceable clues or possible motives. Though Guy refuses, it will not be so easy to rid himself of the psychopathic Bruno. The film is tightly paced and dist ... (more)

My movie year 2018 (463 movies items)

"31.5. (Teatteri/35 mm) En lopulta töiden vuoksi kuitenkaan päässyt katsomaan romanialaista pommikomediaa. Ihan hyvä näin, sillä toimittaja Nykäsen mukaan formaatti oli rumaakin rumempi dcp. Sen sijaan katsoin pärisevällä ääniraidalla rämpytetyn, kummastuksekseni aiemmin näkemättä jääneen Hitchcockin, jossa poliisi ampuu vahingossa karusellinpitäjän ja roisto yrittää nakata tätä lapsenomaisella huumorilla kumauttavan suloisen pikkupojan huippuvauhdeista mäkeen.

Movie Reviews (701-750) (50 movies items)

" Extraordinary concept and adaptation of a well thought-out novel about two men who meet on a train and one of them encourages the other to "swap" murders, "I kill your wife if you kill my father". Filled with Hitchcock's notable dark humor, a memorable ending and the usual visual finesse that one expect from the master director, but it is Robert Walker's memorable portrayal as the psychopath that steal every scene in what is his signature role."
