The Reviews for I Confess (1953) 1080p

The new DVD is excellent.Reviewed byjgeppersonVote: 8/10

This may not be one of Hitchcock's greatest movies, but it's still a great film, since it was made by the master, who somehow managed to survive beautifully in Hollywood for many years. It contains many of his favorite things: lamps, the backs of people's heads, bedposts, ladies pacing in front of mantelpieces, obvious symbolism, architecture, performing arts halls, etc. More somber in tone than most Hitchcock thrillers, it should not be missed by any Hitchcock fan.

Nor by any Montgomery Clift fan. At one point Clift is juxtaposed against a statue of Christ dragging his cross, taunted by soldiers. This could be the impishly sadistic Hitchcock poking fun at the "plugged-up" persona that Clift was developing for himself, but Clift is nevertheless excellent as the brooding, sensitive priest trapped by his own devotional vows. And of course he's physically beautiful: the hair, the eyes, the eyebrows.

Less effective, although she has her moments, is Anne Baxter who was a replacement for a European actress. It's too bad, because it's hard to buy Baxter as the luscious Hitchcock blonde. Her hairdo is awful (well, it was 1953, so it's not entirely her fault)and she does that line reading that she does in every movie, including "All About Eve," where each line fades to a whisper, or starts as a whisper and stays that way. Once you become aware of it, you can't not notice it! She does, however, have at least one great Orry-Kelly dress and the way she snaps "Yes" at her husband was worth a rollback for a second viewing.

The new DVD is excellent. It has a little documentary which is enjoyable, if you can stand Peter Bogdanovich doing his Hitchcock impersonation. Hitchcock's daughter is also in the documentary. It's amazing how she seems to not really understand what her father was up to sub-textually, but she continues to enjoy his success.

A fitting end to a magical era.Reviewed byTexMetal4JCVote: 8/10

"I Confess" is a landmark film in the Alfred Hitchcock collection. It is the last black and white film Hitchcock made (with the notable exception of Psycho seven years later). But it was made at a time when Hitchcock was at the peak of his career. I Confess was sandwiched between internationally-acclaimed classics Strangers on a Train and Dial M for Murder. And so I Confess, not being a stunning Hitchcock film, fell between the cracks into that category of Hitchcock known as: "The Underrated Films".

"The Underrated Films" are those films that Hitchcock made that did not meet with box office success, but have been re-evaluated by his next generation of fans and have been found worthy of mention, most notably: Topaz, Stage Fright, Marnie and I Confess.

I Confess is definitely not standard Hitchcock. There's no really stunning visual effects (apart from the excellent background photography), no incredible camera angles, no definitive Hitchcockian scenes. It's just a typical movie with a typical plot.

That plot however, is indeed the purveyor of the modern courtroom drama. A priest takes confession from a man that works in the rectory. The worker confesses he has murdered a man in a robbery attempt. The victim also happened to be blackmailing the priest and his former lover. The priest falls under suspicion and is arrested, but he cannot clear himself because his religious duties forbid him to reveal what a man has confessed.

True, the plot hasn't aged well. Every show from Matlock to Diagnosis Murder has used it. But considering the age of the movie (Going on 50 years), it is safe to say that this was the source for such tales.

The ever-present Hitchcock plot twist is also quite good. The verdict (it should be noted that this is one of the only Hitchcock movies to feature a good portion of the trial, and not just the verdict/sentencing), the verdict sparks public outrage and the ensuing events are shocking indeed.

Overall, Montgomery Cliff is excellent as the falsely accused priest, and Hitchcock - although unspectacular - is still the closest thing to a perfect director the film world has seen. The plot is good, the story flows well and it is a fine sendoff for Hitchcock's black and white era.


Unappreciated HitchcockReviewed byperfectbondVote: 9/10

I watched this recently and am somewhat perplexed by the relatively low score (for a Hitchcock film) that it has received. I thought the performances by Anne Baxter, Karl Malden, and especially Monty as the tortured priest were pitch perfect. The stark black and white photography also contributed greatly to the gloomy almost defeatist mood of the film. The extended flashback interlude of the past romance between Logan and Madam Grandfort was also very moving. The 'villain' Keller (Hasse) was sympathetic to a slight degree and the understated tension of his encounters with Logan were spine tingling. All in all, this is yet another gem from The Master, 9/10.
