Incredibly underrated Hitchcock. No, it's not on the level of his best work, but as Stonez says in the post immediately below this, it has a lot going for it both visually and thematically. And you should never need any prodding to watch anything that Montgomery Clift is in.
Lesser Hitchcock thriller has a great visual style, but falls short in the story department. Despite a few solid suspense sequences, it's slow and talky - bogged down further by an unconvincing love story. Montgomery Clift is less than believable as the conflicted priest, though Karl Malden is good as a determined detective.
Very underappreciated Hitch. Not sure why. Good plot and tight script. Excellent performances from Clift, Malden, and co. Great imagery and wonderful B&W cinematography. The public slept on it back in the day, don't sleep on it now. Up there with Lifeboat in terms of his more psychological films
This is a consistently beautiful film from beginning to end, with so many virtues - a wonderful cast, effective location shots and well paced storytelling. The unusually somber and quiet narrative for a Hitchcock film culminates in a very moving final act.
