  6. Rattzz Matanzano's rating of the film Blackmail

    Not a big fan of the last bit of the movie, it didn't seem as well thought-out as the rest.

  7. Pedro Miguel's rating of the film Blackmail

    O primeiro filme sonoro de Hitchcock ou O segundo filme que vejo dele ou O primeiro filme que vi na Cinemateca ou Knife...Knife....Knife.....Knife....KNIFE! Ver este filme em película foi uma experiência única e foi interessante ver como desde tão cedo Hitchcock se interessava por recriar as nossas próprias experiências sensoriais.

  8. João R's rating of the film Blackmail

    Amazing character development - regarding Alice White -, beautiful shots but a story with a lack of twists and details that not always are effective.

  9. Hikaru's rating of the film Blackmail

    Hitch's first talkie and already sound is used as a tool of oppression. The arrival of sound signals certain shifts in his cinematic style, favoring long takes instead of shot and reverse shots. However, still the best segments are the scenes conceived as silent.

  10. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Blackmail

    Not as good enough as The Lodger.

  11. Steve's rating of the film Blackmail

    Wow just brilliant Hitchcock.

  12. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Blackmail

    Crímenes, pistas, chantajes, suspenso, psicología, rubias, cameos y leve aversión a las mujeres; son algunos puntos fuertes que Alfred Hitchcock ya venía planteando desde "The Lodger" (1927) y que va convirtiendo en una afición para lo que será el resto de su filmografía.

  13. Harry Rossi's rating of the film Blackmail

    Extremely dated. Very impressively shot but not much else to offer.

  14. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Blackmail

    While it might seem slow to casual viewers, this early Hitchcock still impresses despite the dubbing of Anny Ondra.

  15. Vaida Kazlauskaitė's rating of the film Blackmail

    After a number of visually attractive but poor in storytelling pictures, this was a true breath of fresh air among Hitch's early works. I found the story catchy and suspenseful, with some witty one-liners and interesting visuals. Moreover, Hitch managed not to overuse the sound and made the best of it. KNIVES UP!

  16. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film Blackmail

  17. Dave's rating of the film Blackmail

    Remains the best silent Hitchcock that I have seen.

  18. SALESK's rating of the film Blackmail

    A police procedural with plenty of Hitch swag.
