As far as Alfred Hitchcock movies go, it's a definite waste of talent and the viewer's time. If you're hoping for some twist or groundbreaking revelation to occur at the conclusion, you're shit out of luck. If you are hoping for memorable dialogue or solid characterization, you're shit out of luck. Sure its b&w cinematography is nice and Montgomery Clift gives a good performance but you'd also expect that at the very least from the likes of William Fichtner or Nicolas Cage no matter how terrible the film actually is.

This film is beautiful to look at: shadowing, angles, symbolism, and more importantly it gives us a different look at Mr. Hitchcock himself. A very serious spiritual film that contains wonderful performances, not just Clift's. I did think the film would go in a different direction, and from what I have read Hitch tried to but was restricted by outside pressures. It is a testament to his creativity that he fashioned such a wonderful film under such constraints. This is especially true of the ending which was very satisfying to me. With the possible exception of Vertigo, this may be Hitch's most personal film. It is absolutely a very interesting one.

I Confess

***Spoiler Alert*** I Confess that this is the 1st ever Hitchcock movie I truly enjoyed.I've never liked any of Hitchcock's other movies so I was NOT expecting to like this 1 at all.I was expecting to either fall asleep while watching it or turn it off after 20-30 minutes.I was into the movie right from the start & couldn't wait to see how it ended.My only complaint about I Confess was the ending.I never heard the 2 people, The 1 responsible for the murder & his wife confess to anything.The only thing they did was ask for forgiveness.I was expecting for the wife's conscience to get to her & she'd confess that her husband was the killer or the husband would confess to everything but neither 1 seemed to & that ruined the movie for me a bit.But still, Even if you're not a fan of Hitchcock …
