Severely underrated masterpiece from Hitchcock.

Beautiful flow to the story, the lead characters are mesmerising and the ending is absolutely tense.

I was moved by the scene with the blind man and Kane. Never forget it.

I found this one pretty entertaining, and there were some good scenes - especially the ending, but it's still tough to recommend this one highly. Hitchcock films are often of such a high standard but this film just can't compare to his best. The plot is a bit ridiculous, and some storylines are just left unresolved.

A rather patriotic war-time film about a man falsely accused of sabotage running across the country and encountering all sorts of quirky types in his quest to find the real culprit and exonerate himself. I'd never realized it before juxtaposing the two, but there really is close parentage between Hitch and the Cohens. It's not just the unraveling perfect crimes or the atmospheric suspense, it's also the unusual characters one meets, even for a single scene. In Saboteur, there's a meaning to it, that even the most unlikely person can do their bit for their country. "Good Americans" are thus represented by a blind old man (a stand-out scene) and a train car full of sideshow freaks. These are contrasted with rich, sophisticated Fifth Columnists. It's a more complex film than it first appears; my only real complaint being the abruptness of the ending, though it is a memorable enough sequence.

An overlooked Hitchcock film. I enjoyed it a lot.
