Otto Preminger United States, 1944

Dave's rating of the film Laura

The fact that everyone around Laura is trying to hide something, however innocuous, makes things even more ambiguous. The uncertainty of it all can be felt. Even though the actual character of Laura Hunt doesn’t appear in the flesh until well into the movie, the power of the presence dominates everything. Preminger is in complete control throughout.
