    Not the usual kind of Hitchcock that I'm used to seeing, but a damn fine piece. Amazing how a 97 minute movie on a boat can be so exciting. A true testament to how much of a Genius Alfred was. 6 years 2 months ago

    Hitchcock made several "limited setting" films throughout his career, Lifeboat stands well on its sea legs against many of his classics. The cast is well chosen and the plot works its way to every good plot point that one could come up with on a stranded lifeboat. Tallulah Bankhead was a brilliant pick and mirrors her character's preposterous appearance on a Lifeboat in the Atlantic perfectly. 2 years 2 months ago

    Hitchcock managed to make a great thriller out of a confined type of story. Can you imagine watching a group of people so different between them in a boat being entertaining and even exciting? I couldn't!

    I also liked how the story is capable to question at some level how people can stay true to themselves and to maintain their values or not in such horrific conditions.
