  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Whirlpool

    Second film des quatre collaborations entre le réalisateur et l'actrice Gene Tierney et l'un des moins connus, bien que tout à fait estimable et intéressant... www.cinefiches.com

  7. Aaken's rating of the film Whirlpool

    Gene Tierney has always been used at her best when she had to play heroines who were somehow disconnected to (their) reality: drugs in 'Shanghai Gesture', sublimated in a painting and believed to be dead in 'Laura', in love with a ghost in 'The Ghost and Mrs. Muir'... Here sleepwalking and the victim of a dubious psychoanalyst... Her mere presence is enough to convey all the depths and darkness of her character.

  8. SpacePirate's rating of the film Whirlpool

    A nice serviceable noir to satisfy your cravings. 3.5 stars

  9. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Whirlpool

    "Do you think these dysfunctional personalities are essential to film noir?" "Absolutely!" http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2014/11/episode-36-films-noir-of-otto-preminger.html

  10. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Whirlpool

    ★★★ Preminger doesn't hypnotize.

  11. Log Lady's rating of the film Whirlpool

    Not particularly memorable. Uneven and flat, and doesn't come close to Laura. More like a moderately entertaining piece to watch if in need of another film noir fix. I'm starting to warm up to Gene Tierney, though, and Ferrer makes an excellent villain.

  12. Ariel Rowan's rating of the film Whirlpool

  13. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Whirlpool

    If the screenwriter, Ben Hecht had taken the time to iron out the plot inconsistencies, this could have been a great movie. Nevertheless, "Whirlpool" is still an interesting psychological thriller well worth watching.

  14. Anton Williams's rating of the film Whirlpool

    Gene Tierney was one of the most beautiful woman in the Film-Noir era.

  15. Altero's rating of the film Whirlpool

    Far-fetched. Pleasant, though.

  16. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Whirlpool

    One of the oddest noirs...with Preminger failing to realize he's NOT making Laura Part II. Gene Tierney is stunning and for once Ferrer's haminess suits his role.

  17. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Whirlpool

    Noir psycho-drama from Otto Preminger is an uneven old-fashioned melodrama. Jose Ferrer steals the show as a slimy charlatan, and there are a handful of strong moments - but ultimately, it's really nothing special or memorable. Film noir fans may find it moderately entertaining.
