    The master of precise composition of wrong perception

  4. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    Hitchcock's framing in this is absolutely stunning!

  6. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The Wrong Man

  7. Maudealan's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    The "this really happened" element are sort of annoying and jarring in what's an otherwise v effective movie

  8. A.B. II: The Return's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    This film is clearly Hitchcock projecting his real-life fear of the police onto the screen. This does mean you get some unnecessarily long sequences of legal procedure, as well as a hammered-in central point. But, mostly, Hitchcock utilizes the real-life story to create a rare suspense film of shocking, utter believability. Overall, its heavy-handedness is overshadowed by its realism and modern relevance.

  10. cestrumnocturnum's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    a good film noir, a better hitchcock.

  11. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    ****1/2 as it stands, but ***** if I block out the silly introduction and, especially, everything's-fine end titles.

  12. Martin Wilson's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    VERA MILES: Implosion 2 - Like VERTIGO, this film changes focus midway, but in contrast to Stewart's increasing neurosis, here Fonda watches helplessly as his wife slowly fades away. Unlike the conventional use of histrionics to depict breakdown, she just starts to shut down. It's further proof of Hitchcock's discernment that he was deeply impressed with this actress. She would have made VERTIGO even greater.

  13. Justine Vernera's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    The lack of twist was probably the most shocking one. This would be a well-deserved 3-star, 4th one goes to Fonda.

  14. sax_and_violins's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    it's such a shame that the second half of it got me so bored.

  15. Poor Margo's rating of the film The Wrong Man

  16. Ricardo Branco's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    there's no logic in madness. There was suspense in true facts after all, it was fate itself.

  17. Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Wrong Man

    I've rarely been more disturbed watching a Hitchcock film, even the ending seems wrong and inappropriate in a way. I think the film works perfectly because Fonda, Miles and the kids are so damn likable as the struggling middle class family, and Hitchcock's gift for exteriorizing psychological traits in small details has never been better, not to mention the striking real locations and his unimpeachable film grammar.

  18. Blumes's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    Very possibly my favorite theme song

  19. animalcalls's rating of the film The Wrong Man

  20. film_lies101's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    Severely lacking in any suspense, hard to believe it's a Hitchcock film.

  21. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    Simplest premiss, most obvious. The economic composition does not equal realism, but reality. Hitch's fingerprint(that smoking gun) strangely similar to Bresson's.

  22. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    Again, why is this film so often ignored. It rivals Vertigo in terms of it's direction. If Hitchcock's film are about his fear of the law and innocence being convicted, than this is logical peak of that theme. In many ways, this is the best Kafka cinematic adaptation. Godard summed it up perfectly when speaking of the miracle at the end. Hitchcock didn't simply put it on film but rather filmed it.

  23. ijol's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    Human mind and memories are vulnerable things.

  24. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Wrong Man

    A typical Hitchcockian motif delivered in an atypical style. Here the filmmaker pares back his stylisations to deliver a story ripped from the headlines. There's a grittiness & almost procedural-like actuality to the way the thing develops, but this only seems to make the (real life) story feel all the more preposterous & far-fetched. I prefer Hitchcock when he's pushing the Freudian analysis & dreamlike abstraction.
