Ratings & Reviews

  1. Diderot's rating of the film The Face Behind the Mask

    One of the most remarkable genre hybrids in the classical Hollywood output-- and thank God for Peter Lorre.

  2. José Neves's rating of the film The Face Behind the Mask

    Remarkable idea that has filmic antecedents and will have followers: the mask that represents (is) the twist of the soul, a figuration of the intimate, a symbolic outward movement, a profound idea of the German romanticism rooted in the expressionism. However, despite some good sequences and the extraordinary Peter Lorre, the film only fulfills its program.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Face Behind the Mask

    Peter Lorre is wonderful as usual, but what a harsh lesson he has to learn! The dystopia beneath the utopia that is this here United States.
