Based on the true story of a musician wrongly accused of robbing an insurance company and the grave effect his predicament has on his family.
Frighteningly authentic, the story generates only a modicum of drama.
Boasting an iconic performance from Henry Fonda in the titular role, this is Hitchcock's most somber film and one of of the bleakest works in film history, which may account for its commercial failure and underappreciated status.
One of Hitchcock's underrated great films that never got its proper due, put aside by some critics as merely a minor work.
It's a banner title in Henry Fonda's acting repertoire, and one that works to illustrate Hitchcock's fractured psychoses.
Essentially a crime noir thriller with a twist, Paul McGuigan's film is showy and sharp, whose witty dialogue is delivered with a shrug
Fine if lower keyed Hitchcock with Fonda as wrongly accused man whose life is wrecked.
Confined spaces highlight Hitchcock's inversion of his usual fugitive-on-the-run films. (From Hitchcock 101)
Em um de seus trabalhos mais subestimados, Hitchcock cria uma atmosfera angustiante e claustrofóbica a partir de incidentes nada espetaculares, sendo auxiliado pela atuação precisa de Fonda.
A standout piece in Hitchcock's oeuvre and a film that richly deserves its place among the filmmaker's greatest works.
