From it's first unparalleled shot to it's last lonely frame this was a masterwork. Every shot is so well composed and Welles created one of cinemas best villains.

For my money there is no version worth seeing other than the 1998 "memo" version. It's the closest we'll ever get to seeing a truly complete film. It's sad that this film was placed up there with films like Blade Runner and Metropolis that were almost ruined by studio interference.

The cinematography is brilliant -- every scene is perfect. The movie feels like a bad dream, where every character, location, camera angle and line of dialogue is crooked.

This is a cool movie, though that lazy-ass "if you don't like X acclaimed film, then you're a braindead Michael Bay/Marvel loving simpleton" ad hominem should be fucking banned from commenting.

Janet Leigh should have learned her lesson with Motels, but she just had to stop in at Bates.

Heston almost had me believing he was a Mexican by the end of this one. Good flick.

"You know what a Mary Jane is?"
This whole film's greatness rests firmly on the shoulders of Welles. Although, the story isn't all that common, it's also not that interesting. Although, the acting is top notch all around, most characters outside of Hank Quinlan aren't that interesting. I'm still trying to understand why Marlene Dietrich is in this film.
However, all these flaws are washed by Welles directing. It's just outstanding. Even after 58 years, it still feels fresh. It's not something you see often. Every cinema lover should see this for this reason alone. 8/10.

The great Orson Welles gives us a GREAT example of The anti-hero in cinema. A story about corruption and human fall down , beautifully told by one of the fathers of the genre.

I really enjoyed the examination of the characters and the idea of innocence in a prejudiced border town and it's portrayal. Shame on the production studio that cut the original; Orson Welles is a genius. That is all.

Amazingly near perfect noir. I never saw the studio version but this re edit is just magnificent.
