  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Un petit chef-d'oeuvre du grand Fritz Lang, imprégné de psychanalyse, comme quelques autres films de l'époque (Hitchcock, Siodmak, Bernhardt) et qui, dans son explicative conclusion, se révèle n'être qu'un étonnant rêve... www.cinefiches.com

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    I prefer this movie to Scarlett Street for a number of reasons. Joan Bennett is much nicer to be around, Edward the O.G. is not such a loser, and Dan Duryea doesn't have to die. Plus it's got a bit of the old Wizard of OZ in there.

  3. filmcapsule's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    An interestingly laconic, if not a bit lifeless, paranoid thrilled from Lang. There's an endearing middle-aged frumpiness about the film's moralistic narrative thread, but it's under-explored once the murder cover-up begins. I suppose that tone is what led to the casting of Robinson, however I would have preferred someone a bit more manic to really sell the tension and encroaching dread of being caught.

  5. Mauricio Mariano Jacoby Muniz's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    The final act sucks, but still lovely; like Joan Bennett <3

  6. Ghostman's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    A near-masterpiece if it wasn't for that last couple minutes. Still great though. Fuck censorship.

  7. msmichel's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Weaker entry from Lang that compromises itself with its final scene in a way that makes the rest of the film seem like a slap in the face. Only thing missing was Dorothy saying '..and you were there too...". An o.k. performance by Robinson outshone by Joan Bennett and Raymond Massey. Atmospheric but the coincidences in such a cautionary tale seem ridiculous at times, and again such a terrible finale.

  8. Carmen Pequena's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    First cautionary tale for cheating husbands I ever saw. Real funny :D

  9. James Devereaux's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Masterful from Edward G Robinson.

  10. Čavle Margarin's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

  11. Louise_Dietrich's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    It was be a great film if you turn it off with 5 minutes remaining. Yikes.

  12. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Perfect Hitchcockian suspense -pre Dial M for Murder- until last 15 minutes. One of the biggest disappointments of film history. What was that, "It's a Wonderful Life?" Suspense to comedy? That is why only one Hitchcock all we have.

  13. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Despite its Production Code ending inspired by Caligari the film is a great early noir. Robinson gives a fine performance and Lang's direction offers plenty of imagery, themes, and thrills.

  14. Kai White's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Stupid ending. I wish the final three minutes would somehow get lost, you know, like most of Greed.

  15. Cineastic's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    For all y'all complaining about the assuaged ending, the Hays Code stipulated that criminals are not allowed to get away with crimes (which would have been the case with Joan Bennett), along with some other morbid elements.

  16. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Great movie until the final scene. What a crap ending for such a good noir! Would have loved to have seen Fritz Lang's intended final scene rather than this sugar coat. ..

  17. Tony Zhou's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Fritz Lang, you're diabolical. This is one of the best audience experiences I've ever had with noir - not only suspenseful and paranoid but also very very funny, especially how Robinson always manages to get into one damn thing after another. This is pure emotional manipulation, almost on par with Psycho.

  18. Sabrina Crews's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    A very gripping film with a very lame conclusion.

  19. saptarshi's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    I'll only comment to push the idiot off the page, who spoiled the movie, regardless of what you feel about the ending, it isn't cool to reveal it

  20. Edward Copeland's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Fritz, Fritz, Fritz. You were making such a great take on the noir genre and then you go and ruin it in the final moments. What a disappoiinting ending. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2010/02/warned-against-siren-call-of-adventure.html

  21. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    The ending was quite the puncture to take the wind out of this film's sail. However Joan Bennett was a knockout!!!

  22. chanandre's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    [Cinémathèque PT #267: 35 mm]

  23. Dave's rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Lang and Robinson were far better together the next year in Scarlet Street. Even so, this one is entertaining, if a bit light weight.

  24. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Woman in the Window

    Not as great as SCARLET STREET but still a very good Fritz Lang film of the WWII period. Count the number of doors (figurative or not) Edward G. Robinson has to open or close during the movie, it’s amazing ! Highly recommended.
