Decent enough, but disappointing coming from Hitchcock after a run of classics. Although Hitchcock occasionally pulls off some great individual scenes, it mainly seems too slow and talky, and relies on some weak and unconvincing psychological plot devices.
Extremely good and very underrated.
Connery and Hedren work beautifully together, what a pair of beauties.
I love the build up to the end, thrilling as always Mr. Hitchcock.
Technically, I think this film is incredible. The staging, the framing, the acting from Connery and Hedron (though to have seen this with Grace Kelly as planned would have been something else) and the supporting cast is fantastic. The pacing does lag at times, and the melodramatic flourishes may seem overly theatrical to some, it was a groundbreaking film for 1964.
