Les diaboliques

Henri-Georges Clouzot France, 1955

Dave's rating of the film Diabolique

Clouzot tries to out-Hitchcock Hitchcock. He comes close, but this one doesn't hold up to repeat viewings quite as well as Hitchcock at his finest. Even so, it's a classic and one of the greatest thrillers of the era. Just a pleasure to watch, particularly the first time you get to experience it.
