  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Impeccable et implacable thriller langien qui mérite une redécouverte ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. Diderot's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    "Lang is the cineaste of the concept", said Rivette. This film is "simply the description of an experiment." Where are the Rivettes these days? Hollywood gets no fucking respect.

  3. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Rivals Murnau's The Last Laugh for terrible, weird endings that ruin otherwise incredible films. Very disappointing, as the courtroom scenes, reminiscent of M, are the most tense and thought-provoking moments of his American period.

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Lang's last American film is certainly not least! This one has some pretty surprising twists to it with some very tense moments towards the end. That being said, it should be warned that this one suffers a bit from a low budget feel. A shame a master like Lang wasn't given more to work with, however, he takes Andrews and co. as far as he can, making a very unconventional and successful noir/murder picture. 4 stars

  5. Aardsy's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Don't try something so stupid at home.

  6. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Plot contrivances abound to the point of involuntary humor; the whole cast looks bored. Still, one can't say this is badly made.

  7. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    "That's the end of every biography online, 'He was in Contempt, and then he died.'" http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/07/episode-64-films-noir-of-fritz-lang.html

    I won't say just why but if this plot interests you https://mubi.com/films/the-life-of-david-gale may also be of interest to you.

  9. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    The master leaves Hollywood the same way he entered, by inquiring on America's death penalty. It's a slow burn, one that may seem like a rethread of past glories, but the reward is worth it. Lang manages to make a film where everyone is simultaneously innocent and guilty. It's also obviously autobiographical, as the old man who is against the penalty and who launched this whole affair is clearly a stand in for Lang.

  10. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Jacques Rivette's essay about the film, 'The Hand', should be a must read for those who want a brilliant, radical new perspective at a film that seems at first so lifeless and artificial.

  11. OwainCai's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    I've heard amazing things about this film, but I can't find it anywhere (PAL version). It's shame, I really want to watch this.

  12. Adam Suraf's rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Sometimes considered a late period noir, but really a dressed up murder/court mystery with TV drama aesthetics, typical of B-films of the late 50's. Aging master Fritz Lang keeps things interesting, despite a weak performance from a past his prime, alcoholic, Dana Andrews. Lang's last American film.

  13. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

    Highly recommended. Last Hollywood movie of the German master. An implacable indictment not only against capital punishment but also against the American legal system. Indispensable.
