Ratings & Reviews

  1. DSPRKY's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Clearly made before Hitchcock hit his stride, this story contains a little bit too much of everything to really jibe.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Ce film fut un incroyable échec commercial à sa sortie aux States. Il reste pourtant un parfait petit chef-d'oeuvre dans la thématique hitchcockienne et dans la subtilité "tendue" du scénario. Une réalisation méconnue, mal-aimée, qui mérite enfin une rapide et totale réhabilitation. Il est à noter que l'insuccès fut tel qu'il mit fin à la compagnie indépendante que le metteur en scène avait créée. www.cinefiches.com

  3. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    "Under Crapricorn", as Joseph Cotten liked to call it.

  4. Histioteuthis's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    It's so good! Like Hitchcock was pretty good at melodramas despite hating them which is lucky for everyone I guess

  5. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    There are spectacular arrangements, but they are not built for Hitchcock's 'cinematic pace'. They are frozen, static. The story is rooted too deep in the theatrical tradition.

  6. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Given its status as a flop and an oddity, ignored by the public and semi-disowned by its creator, this aberration is one of cinema's quintessential rediscoveries—and actually one of Hitch's better films. The long takes are stunning and more meaningful than in Rope, creating atmosphere that makes preposterous melodrama feel like a rich, poetic allegory on exile, self-loathing, & the difference between crime and sin.

  7. Nathan Grey Hollis's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Not my favorite Hitchcock. A little to over dramatic for my taste. Jack Cardiff's cinematography is worth the watch however.

  8. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Pellicola sicuramente originale di Hitchcock che però è riuscita ad affascinarmi molto.La messa in scena è davvero d'altri tempi,l'uso del piano è molto frequente ed elaborato,la fotografia è accesissima,i personaggi sono ambigui e profondi(Milly è meravigliosa).Tutto il film sembra attraversato da una vena poetica che sublima il tutto e le scelte sceniche,anche se semplici,sono sempre supportate da una mano unica.4*

  9. José Neves's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Cinematography by Jack Cardiff.

  10. Hikaru's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    A few inventive moments and the gorgeous photography by Jack Cardiff cannot save a monologue-driven and dull script like this. Bergman looks as if she is in a delirium whenever she is on screen.

  11. NICOLE86's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Cotten was right to call this under CRAPicorn

  12. Dale Wittig's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    The first Hitchcock film that I can remember watching (CBS 1968,) it contains Joseph Cotten's heartfelt performance as an one time stable hand who took the blame for his wealthy wife's crime and was sentenced to transportation. Ingrid Bergman again shows her devotion to Hitch by performing her role as the alcoholic wife with fragility and surprising strength in a New South Wales recreated on a British sound stage.

  13. Lee's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    The worst Hitchcock I have ever seen. A critic was right when he said the first interesting thing happens an hour and a half into the movie.

  14. Charles Coleman's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Not too bad, a bit like Gaslight but more odd. Some really interesting stuff technically. All the men seem to vie for the troubled Bergman. Too long but not as bad as its reputation.

  15. Nathan Deming's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Some interesting cinematography and direction, but this film is somehow less than the whole of its parts (maybe due to some plot problems.)

  16. PoopButt's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Easily the worst Post-British Hitchcock.

  17. MarcH's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Tried 5 or 6 times over the years to get through it. Always puts me right to sleep.

  18. chanandre's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    Again print beats DVD. Discovered oh so many new details after having watched this on 35 mm print. Loved the camera movements, the sound. And seeing Ingrid on a big screen is still a revelation. And Cotten's "I don't say things for fun" is quite the line. Masterpiece.

  19. SAMMAX's rating of the film Under Capricorn

    the monologue is just too long...
