  1. Ghostman's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    An outstanding thriller & one of Hitchcock's very best films. Now that I've seen it myself, I can identify its influence in so many films that came after. Hitchcock is able to flip from a Norman Rockwell-like, idyllic postcard fantasy of America to a Gothic horror environment in the blink of an eye and it's this tonal & aesthetic dexterity that gives the movie its elemental power. It's a perfect film of its kind.

  2. lbunuel's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    A concrete poem full of parallelism, doubles, alliterations, and strange, dream-like rhymes. Also a masterpiece of mood, and one of the greatest thrillers of all time.

  3. dionysus67's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Masterful Hitchock transformation of the camera-eye to a psychological lens ready to invade the middle-class haven in this cat-and-mouse play between desire and death. The obvious yet still stimulating play with names features an impeccable "Charlie" who functions as the camera obscura of his niece and her sexual confiscation by her stagnantly conformist patriarchal milieu. A virtuoso opening sequence captivates!

  4. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Just okay, but far behind his best movies.

  5. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

  6. Robert H's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    A remarkable film full of delight, suspense and the ever-so-unexpected. Wright was wonderful to watch and perfectly cast - her predicament too made her a powerful character. The sub-plot between the father and the neighbour is a wonderful layer - it takes center stage yet somehow throwaway. And the wonderful line "I'm not talking about writing books I'm talking about killing you!"

  7. Inteleter's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Don't know why it took me this long to dip into Hitchcock's filmography. This was great; is full of suspense and Hitch shows that he is certainly a great director. Definitely looking forward to seeing more.

  9. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Teresa Wright and Joseph Cotten are both superb in a Hitchcock film as typically playful as it is typically tense.

  10. NicoIlGermanico's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

  11. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Very good but quite top drawer Hitchcock. The romantic sub-plot is dumb, the music ghastly and even the direction a bit blatant here and there (e.g. the strangling gesture Cotten makes with his hands). And the story is full of holes and implausibilities. A chilling film, nonetheless, with a grimly ironic coda and excellent small-town atmosphere.

  12. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    So well filmed, such a structure in every frame and its tempo that we can call it another masterpiece from the King of suspense.

  13. tinderness's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Der Film kommt bei weitem nicht an die Spannung und Ambivalenz von Hitchcocks späteren Filmen heran. Großartig aber Joseph Cotton und die Brüche, die er in seinem Spiel anlegt.

  14. CJG's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Felt like I was going around on a loop..Uncle Charlie is the killer, Uncle Charlie is the killer, Uncle Charlie... which IMHO diluted the suspense rather than adding to it. However some really great moments, humour and fine acting.

  15. Epinephrin's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    These old films are so naive and easy. not to say stupid. i don't understand why this film is so high rated. i found it boring, bad acted (esp. the mother, the little sister) and somehow made for idiots.

  16. P D Dawson's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Quite simply a masterpiece in every respect. Joseph Cotton is perfectly believable as the villain, yet equally believable as a long lost uncle come home. In essence, the premise is simple, yet Hitchcock manages to turn the wheels of tension with a subtlety that is unsettling & very satisfying. Hitchcock has made many films about innocent men being wrongfully accused, but here Cotton plays a guilty man running free.

  17. Monique Houdijk's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    ‘De schaduw van een twijfel’ is wel een erg letterlijke vertaling van ‘A shadow of a doubt’. Het is een uitdrukking in het Engels die beter vertaald wordt als ‘een spoortje twijfel’. Ook ‘meester van de spanning’ komt gekunsteld over. Onvertaald is ‘Master Of Suspense’ veel sterker. Er is maar 1 Master Of Suspense en dat is Alfred Hitchcock. Dat zit gebakken in de terminologie binnen de filmwereld.

  18. Paul's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Beautifully constructed intricate story that just builds the suspense. Magnificent.

  19. Rowan Ah-See's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Hitchcock really knew how to implement a shed into a movie. Two of the best shed scenes of all time in one film, wow.

  20. Nicole Richie's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    those shots following Charlotte through the crowded streets are amazing.

  21. Nachtreich's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

  22. Sơn Phước's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    It has comedy, and better than the overrated "Rebecca".

  23. Le temps perdu's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    A less inspired Hitchcock. Well made but missing awesome scenes, which you might expect from Alfred the Great.

  24. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Im Schatten des Zweifels

    Nice shadow work. What throws me off is that uncle Charlie is such an obvious bad guy and a terrible liar. How stupid were these people?
