  1. Renton47's rating of the film In the Palm of Your Hand

    After an intriguing and ambitious opening sequence, 'Palm' quickly abandons any pretense to the grandeur. It's a shame because the duplicity of fortune-telling intersected with doomed fates seems like a promising noir premise. The remaining is straight-forward, with a lack of motive or character particularly hindering plausibility. It's not bad, just not distinct enough from the pack.

  2. ramosbarajas's rating of the film In the Palm of Your Hand

    de Cordova, renowned for playing morally conflicted men against carnal and cunning femme fatales, gives us a similar performance here. Palma's performance shines above. As is the case with most of Gavaldon's films, the story is very straight forward, and often the characters seem underdeveloped. A recurring flaw in Gavaldon's films. For me it's a nice film, but not perfect.

  3. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film In the Palm of Your Hand

    film noir a la mexicana. lástima que arturo de córdova no tenga pulsión sexual en su actuación, eso le resta densidad y la coloca por debajo de su modelo double indemnity. el concentrado simbólico de las manos por ejemplo, y la puesta en escena gavaldonesca crean una película notable llena de sutiles apuntes y movimientos de corte simbólico
