*Possible Spoilers*

Sublime. While it takes a while to get going, once the Macguffin is introduced in the guise of a myesterious ring, I was hooked. While at first I wasn't sure Joseph Cotten (who is an actor I greatly admire), was completely believable as the 'good Uncle Charlie', I came to realise that it doesn't really matter, it was never really the intention for him to start th... read more

I have always been a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock’s work and since this movie was his last classic I still haven’t watch yet, I was really eager to check it out. On top of that, it was apparently Hitchcock’s favorite movies so I was expecting a lot from the damned thing. Well, to be honest, I was rather amazed by how little I actually cared about this movie.

Fall Horrorfest 2018 (40 movies items)

" Watched Nov 1st Rating: Streamed on Shudder Not really a horror film but I added Rope here so I might as well. Shadow of a Doubt is an easy flick to watch after going for something a little heavier and more graphic like The Wailing. Mild but entertaining, it doesn't hold any surprises, but the character interaction is pretty delightful through the whole thing. The cast was quirky and cute and it worked pretty well. I was worried they'd go with a damsel in distress ending, but they didn't disa"

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2018 (33 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 48min. First Viewing I appreciated the ambition of Shadow of a Doubt more than I did the execution. The plot sets out a movie rife with chilling and unnerving moments, but the script can't quite seal the deal; it's too turgid and restrained to sell it. The characters don't quite pop either; Cotten's character comes off as bored rather than calculating or menacing, and the side characters' obliviousness strains credibility as it goes on. Still, Hitchcock's craftsmanship is unparallel"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"Although it has now fallen into comparative obscurity amongst the more famous works of Alfred Hitchcock, there was a time when the 1943 psychological thriller 'Shadow of a Doubt' was held by most critics to be Hitchcock's best film. This was an opinion shared by the director himself and, while it may not be as striking or elaborate as some of his later masterpieces, it's easy when watching 'Shadow of a Doubt' to understand just why the director held it so dear. Set in the archetypal idyllic smal"

" This is a masterpiece. A compelling, exciting, humorous and unpredictable thriller with a plot that feels completely original even 70 years after it was made. It's timeless."

"15.02. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Alfred Hitchcock Alkaa kyllä vähitellen kyrsiä tämä Hitchcockien katselu. Tässä hämmentävän arvostetussa leffassa ei ollut edes kuvauksellisesti mitään kovin kiinnostavaa, mitä voi sentään yleensä Hitchcock-leffoilta odottaa. Toivottavasti alkaa vähän enemmän meno maistua noiden värileffojen myötä. "
