The Reviews for I Confess (1953) 1080p


Ruth loves Michael, but he...Reviewed bybob998Vote: 9/10

This is one of the disregarded works in Hitchcock's career. Roger Ebert in the Great Movies series has plenty of good things to say about Notorious, Strangers on a Train and other films of this period, but nothing on the only film Hitchcock made with Montgomery Clift, Anne Baxter and Karl Malden. This picture must stand alone in his work, since it is dependent on the remembrance of the past playing a decisive role in the present-day actions of the characters. A typical Hitchcock story has characters who seem to have no past at all--they seem to spring to life to fulfill the demands of the script.

I Confess starts as a typical thriller, then at the 42 minute mark, the story comes to a halt in Robertson's office as Ruth recounts the story of how she fell in love with Michael Logan, who was not fully in love with her (an obvious parallel with Gene Tierney and Tyrone Power in The Razor's Edge). For 16 minutes, we forget there is a murder story to unravel--surely the only time in Hitchcock's work that we are taken away so completely from the matter at hand. This is what makes I Confess a great movie, and a peak in the director's career.

Montgomery Clift has all the attributes of a dedicated priest, and he easily distinguishes himself from the urbane, sympathetic Charles Andre and the monumentally clumsy and distracted Gilles Pelletier playing the other two priests at the rectory. His solitary devotion is just as apparent when he wears a uniform in the wartime scenes. Anne Baxter has always been a favourite actress of mine, from All About Eve to The Razor's Edge, and she is wonderful here as a politician's wife who fails to protect her friend. Roger Dann as the husband does little; it's a shame that Glenn Ford didn't play the part, he would have been excellent (he was born in Quebec City, by the way).

The trouble is that the story is intriguing but has no suspense.Reviewed bypiapiaVote: 6/10

There are not worse mystery stories than those that are resolved by a confession. This picture starts with a confession, and starts well. But the very complicated, and very absurd story's denouement is another confession: The real murderer confesses by shooting people. Hitchcock himself said to Francois Truffaut that he did not remember why he bought the old play in which this picture is based. Lots of coincidences do not construct a suspense story.The picture is saved by the performances of Montgomery Clift (even if it is slightly monotonous), Anne Baxter and Anny Ondra. Imagine a Hitchcock picture without humor!

Atypical HitchcockReviewed bygridoonVote: 7/10

"I Confess" is one of Alfred Hitchcock's least famous films, and it's easy to see why: there is no mystery (we know who the killer is right from the start); there is some suspense but no major set-pieces; there is very little humor (no Cary Grant-type wisecracks here). The movie is a somber psychological drama, and the story of a forbidden love, and perhaps a Christ allegory (the priest has to suffer for another man's sins - he has to bear his own cross). I wouldn't rank it among Hitchcock's best, but it certainly has some of the best acting you can find in a Hitchcock film: Montgomery Clift is superb in a difficult role, Anne Baxter is warm and utterly believable as the woman who is consumed by her love for him, and Karl Malden is perfectly cast as the nosy (no pun intended) inspector on the case.
