Otto Preminger United States, 1947

nessmj's rating of the film Daisy Kenyon

Preminger at times strikes me as a bit clinical. Initially we view Peter as a bit of an oddball. Eventually we see that perception of Peter's being calculating, occasionally bordering cold, are a vessel for his love. Ultimately, being ensnared in love is less attractive that existing freely to love as one pleases.
