Ratings & Reviews

  1. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Undercurrent

    Minnelli's noir-drama, while containing good direction and performance by Hepburn, is a bit overlong and is eerily similar to Notorious. But it's still interesting to see the cast and director playing against type.

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Undercurrent

    Katharine Hepburn hesitates between two kinds of love, society-friendly or romantic, symbolized by Robert Taylor and Robert Mitchum. Vincente Minnelli's first melodrama already foretells the masterpieces of the 50's. So let's forget some Du Maurier scenes that haven't aged so well and enjoy a lucid mise-en-scene illumined by Karl Freund's camera.

  3. SALESK's rating of the film Undercurrent

    Rather pointless cobbling together elements of better films (Gaslight & Daphne du Maurier), Undercurrent is nevertheless never entirely uninteresting. Minnelli steers a too-long script, keeping things afloat & Hepburn is very good as the believably insecure wife to Taylor's dashing millionaire. Mitchum's few scenes are curiosities but worth it--he looks like a kid playing detective in his father's trench coat.
