While Torn Curtain is certainly 'lesser Hitchcock', the Master of Suspense really deals out some suspense in this one. Overall Torn Curtain is decent, unremarkable, of some interest to Hitchcock fans. Hitch's reliance on rear projection was getting annoying at this point, the worst offender being the restaurant scene.
Perhaps if he had had more time to develop the script and maybe not Julie Andrews. I dont mind the score but it is rather stale for a Hitchcock picture. A lot of what made his films so great was the music.
The movie is entertaining, but as I was watching it with my mom we were making fun of the movie whole way through. Like that scene where the good guys kill the enemy spy by putting his head in an oven - unintentional comedy :D This film has some genuine funny moments, but a lot of cringe too.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
