    Another knockout of an experience courtesy of Carol Reed. As in Reed's Fallen Idol, a deceptively simple plot is turned into an engrossing, powerful exploration of what makes us tick, and why we do the things we do. 7 years 9 months ago

    Much to like in this one, including a great finale, but the subplot with the artist was so bizarre and exaggerated that it really turned me off the film. 7 years 9 months ago

    I prefer this over The Third Man although both films were great. The aura represented is melancholic and dark. James Mason is a natural actor. 4 years 3 months ago
