  3. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Spellbound

    CINEMA, 35 mm _ Rewatched (third time but first on big screen). Such a strange film, both modern and not, where everything is below average until this amazing kissing scene. Dali´s dream sequence is perfectly designed and the old Alex give a surprising and refreshing tone to the film that really needed it at that point. Bergman is exquisite but i agree with Truffaut on the fact that Peck is not an hitchcockian actor.

  4. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Spellbound

    2-3. The intent: a female psychoanalyst's emotions give her the edge up on her male colleagues in solving a mystery. The outcome: a deeply stupid woman uses bad science to unravel a series of contrivances while being battered by misogynistic drivel from even 'likable' characters. It is gorgeous, however, thanks to Hitchcock's practiced hand. It's just the script that isn't up to his craft.

  5. Ryan Christopher Coleman's rating of the film Spellbound

    Ileana Douglas introduced a screening of a nitrate print of Spellbound at TCM Fest 2018 by saying, "of course the plot is ridiculous, but"

  6. Genre films > French New Wave's rating of the film Spellbound

    Like many Hitchcock thrillers, it is quite restrained and its psychoanalysis backdrop gives some scenes a tedious quality. Nevertheless, the performances are all solid (Peck and Chekhov take the cake) and I enjoyed the twist at the end. The dream sequence was also effective if a bit short and the scene in which Chekhov drugs Peck was also done well.

  7. Carolina Frade's rating of the film Spellbound

    how people can rave about Marnie (which is the dollar store version of Spellbound, with terrible execution, given it is a 60's movie) and still argue Spellbound is silly is something I'll never understand. If the poor psychoanalysis prevents one from enjoying this then I fail to understand how one could enjoy other Hitchcock films with equally delirious plots, just enjoy this dream of a movie and shut the f* up

  8. jewelsofglory's rating of the film Spellbound

    Beautiful melodrama. The Dali dream sequence was gorgeous and I wish it were longer. Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman have a fabulous chemistry even for that reason this film is worth seeing.

  9. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Spellbound

    3.3 Very contrived. The view on psychoanalysis is silly beyond words. But it's still a Hitchcock movie with nice touches like the hotel lobby scene, the ticket counter or the dream sequence (of course), the gigantic hand and that red splash at the end.

  10. RumbleFish's rating of the film Spellbound

    Ottime premesse ma noiosissimo e con personaggi monodimensionali. C'è stato un tempo in cui Hitchcock poteva piacermi e la sua interpretazione della psicoanalisi avere un valore ma non è oggi.

  11. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Spellbound

    Another fascinating Alfred Hitchcock thriller that gets added value due to the surrealistic dream landscapes that were added by artist Salvador Dali. Ingrid Bergman looks fantastic and is a excellent heroine to follow as she tries to solve the mystery nature of Gregory Peck, who is like a wandering sleepwalker throughout the film. The excellent directed climax is an effective ending to a strong mystery movie.

  12. SVS-XIU's rating of the film Spellbound

  13. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Spellbound

    This was good Hitchcock, not great. But still thoroughly entertaining nonetheless!

  14. bryanvmh's rating of the film Spellbound

    Psychiatry or somnambulance? Gregory Peck is feeling sleepy. Very sleepy.

  15. James Mackin's rating of the film Spellbound

    Pretty typical Hitchcock, some good POV shots. I would've liked a little more of Dali's contributions, but oh well.

  16. Emil Kurjak's rating of the film Spellbound

  17. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Spellbound

    The atmosphere of this film creeped me out as a kid. Now, it looks like a very silly, flimsy, melodramatic picture, whose Freudian psychoanalytic detective work is as pseudo-scientific as anything in a cheesy 50s atomic monster movie. The form, however, is strong, and with the involvement of Bergman, Selznick, and Dali, it's Canonical by default. If only it latched onto the irrationality under the surface.

  18. Pango's rating of the film Spellbound

    One of my favourite Hitchcock's films. The dream sequence is stunning.

  19. FISCHER's rating of the film Spellbound

    >>> Une oeuvre sympathique du grand Alfred qui sacrifia tout de même à la mode du film "psychanalysant", un genre fort prisé à l'époque... www.cinefiches.com

  21. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film Spellbound

  22. Risya's rating of the film Spellbound

    Fairly harmless. I wanted to love this but I can’t look past Gregory Pack’s awkward performance dabbling between a charming love interest and a dangerous psychopath at the same time.
