'Strangers on a Train' provides one hundred minutes of pure sustained suspense. It flows like a breeze from one tense and unpredictable moment to the next. The diabolical 'Bruno' character exudes the perfect sinister edge that is felt in every scene, whether he be present or not. The sweet payoff to the endless dread is in the final 'gasp' worthy confrontation. Absolutely, one of Hitchcock's best films!

Hitchcock shows his masterful directing by developing a tense and fear-ridden thriller from the simplest of scenarios. A pedestrian setting becomes menacing and a seemingly friendly villain becomes chilling.

Sometimes my favorite Hitchcock movie is The 39 Steps; sometimes it's Rear Window or Vertigo. Lately, it's been Strangers on a Train. Robert Walker as Bruno is the psycho character who lives up to author Patricia Highsmith's creation, and he would've made a great Tom Ripley in a movie version of The Talented Mr. Ripley. Farley Granger is suitably uninteresting; his upright character is Bruno's foil. And, once again, Hitchcock, with Robert Walker's help, makes us care more about the psychotic killer. It just isn't right!

My favorite Hitchcock thriller. A great treat and truly one of the most insane villains I have ever seen.

Truly riveting. Farley Granger should have been a bigger star after this.

An "early" Hitchcock film, I don't know what it is about it. It was over acted and silly at times, but it did have its good scenes. Save this one until later on your Hitchcock list.
