  2. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Like Repulsion, the influence of Psycho looms large over this. However, while Polanski seemed liberated by his origins in exploitation, Preminger still has one foot tied to the Hollywood system. It creates an odd mix of the modern (the transgressive) & the old-fashioned (the moralistic). It's beautifully photographed & suitably atmospheric, & survives thanks to a largely compelling mystery & some strong performances.

  3. lbunuel's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Preminger is an academic filmmaker with a twist. There is always a glimpse of perversion that informs his aesthetics, making them less palatable and stronger than most. With that being said, Bunny Lake is an underwhelming addition to the thriller genre. The last 10 minutes have a certain brilliance to it and a remarkable control of pacing and mise-en-scène, but the whole lacks cohesion.

  4. letters never sent's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Completely flawed, but mysterious and captivating until a certain part. Afterwards, it just felt strained. This is based on a book and I just wonder if the flaws were because of the source material to start with.

  8. r u f o's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    One of the best opening titles by Saul Bass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XwegEKlQHw&t=72s

  9. FISCHER's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Une petite fille est enlevée. L'enquête mené par les services judiciaires met bientôt en doute la crédibilité de la mère et même la véritable existence de l'enfant. Fort intrigant ! www.cinefiches.com

  10. Log Lady's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Teeters very close to cheesiness and melodramatics, but my goodness what lovely cinematography! Psychological suspense with an intriguing ending.

  11. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    The curious terror of the Little People's Dancing Room! One of the most quietly perverse films I've ever seen. Almost deliciously queazy. I should so like to read Miss Ford's book on childhood phantamagoria. Melanie Kline could have written the foreword. As for the book I'm currently reading, 'Bunny Lake' chimed very well with Agatha Christie's contemporaneous 'They Do It With Mirrors'.

  12. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Well crafted and highly atmospheric psychological thriller. There's a particularly dark portrayal of English eccentricity and a London setting where everything is either disturbed or operating at the edge of psychosis. This all heightens the sense of suspense as we try to work out where the madness truly lies. Solid performances and some cracking cameos - my favourite being a disgustingly lascivious Noel Coward.

  13. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    A slick & bizarre thriller courtesy of ever excellent Otto Preminger. From Saul Bass's revealing opening credits to Olivier's wise & weathered detective, all the way through to the Zombies pub appearance; there's never a dull moment to be found. Arguably the film's excellence stems from Denys N. Coop's roaming black & white camera work that both thrusts the story along & creates some powerful, haunting, close-ups.

  14. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Really well filmed. Saul Bass title sequences in this film are amazing.

  15. Kaonashiii's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

  16. DanB3000's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Wonderful performances all round, especially from Laurence Olivier, Noel Coward and Martita Hunt. I whooped and howled with laughter at Coward's perverted landlord. Great musical score and Saul Bass titles. Nearly drops a point for Bunny Lake, but the little girl is only 4 so you can't expect too much.

  17. ant's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Somewhat disappointing ending but nonetheless a beautiful film. Unfortunately the sounds often swaps from recorded on set to dubbed. Great titles by Saul Bass

  18. Ben Hector's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    loved the hit and miss camera moves. Olivier is great, love watching him when he's not talking, reacting. Love watching Coward when he's talking

  19. SiIencio's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Promising from the start a smart and suspenseful thriller toying with psychiatric and unconscious backgrounds, the fact is that it later delivers much less in a twist that does not satisfy. Preminger does not beat Hitchcock's Psycho although he had a good go at it. The score is a cringing melody and sprinkled along clever hints of mystery there are all sorts of weird reactions. All that swimming to die at the beach.

  20. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    A superior psychological thriller showing a mother (Carol Lynley) frantically searching for her missing child. The police, however, soon start to wonder if the child ever existed at all. Laurence Olivier is very good at leading the investigation, viewers can enjoy the mellifluous voice of Noël Coward, and everyone involved does a fine job in this mostly ambiguous, and always intriguing, Otto Preminger film.

  21. mattywuh's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    The last ten minutes lets it down.

  22. efe's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Preminger may have beat Hitchcock at his own game with this thriller.

  23. SamSalt's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    Great film I'd not come across before. Pity about the fact it had the most annoying score in the history of movies (Zombies excepted) - almost stopped me watching after the first 20 minutes.

  24. Mister Monkeyman's rating of the film Bunny Lake Is Missing

    A pretty good mystery with the tautness and manipulative skill of a Hitchcock film and an ending that revealed just how deftly my expectations had been lead in the wrong direction.
