Reviews and Quotes 2

"Attenborough, silent, calculating, pale, and unblinking, offers one of the cinema's most convincing embodiments of paranoia and violence."
— David Denby, The New Yorker

"A REDISCOVERED CLASSIC!
A NOIR MASTERPIECE!"
The Newark Star-Ledger

"The exquisitely rendered atmosphere of desolation in this moody 1947 classic hasn't dated one bit."
