The Reviews for I Confess (1953) 1080p


Forgotten Hitchcock's gemReviewed byIlyaMauterVote: 7/10

I Confess is one of the less seen Alfred Hitchcock films that deserve much more attention. It remotely based on a French Stage Play of the beginning of the 20th century by Paul Anthelme called Nos Deux Consciences. It was a film Hitchcock wanted to make for a about a 20 years, but kept postponing it realizing difficulty of acceptance it would have in the society because of the subject the film is about.

Father Michael Logan is a young priest in the late 1940s Quebec who hears a confession from Otto Keller (Otto Hasse), a poor German refugee who works as a caretaker at Father Logan's church, who tells him that he has just committed a murder of a lawyer by the name Vilette, in whose home he broke in with the intent to rob a big sum of money that would improve his, and most importantly his wife Alma's life, whom he can't stand seeing working hard anymore.

Soon the body of the victim is found and Inspector Larrue (Karl Malden) begins to conduct an investigation. He finds witnesses who had seen a priest going out of Vilette's home around the time he was killed. The suspicion falls on Father Logan when discovered that he knew Vilette personally and had a strong personal motive to kill him. In addition to that Otto starts to testify against him also. Now Logan has to make a choice of remaining silent and probably being hanged for a crime he didn't committed or break the secrecy of confession and tell the truth about who the real murderer is.

An intelligent, neatly constructed in the best Hitchcock's trademark style film, definitely deserves to be seen. 8/10

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).

Atypical but underrated HitchcockReviewed byTheLittleSongbirdVote: 9/10

As Alfred Hitchcock is my favourite director of course I would see I Confess. And on the most part I wasn't disappointed, for my tastes Dmitri Tiomkin's music score is too much of a drone(unusual for Tiomkin) but while not among Hitchcock's finest I Confess is what I consider Hitchcock's most underrated(Stage Fright got that honour before I saw this though). We do know who the killer is right at the start and after the first 40 minutes it is somewhat more talky and not quite as suspenseful as other Hitchcocks, there's also the unfamiliarity at the time of the Catholicism codes. It is strikingly shot, helping a lot with the atmosphere, and the settings and costumes are rendered nicely too. The dialogue is talky but is thoughtfully written and gripping, just don't expect the wit of North By Northwest and To Catch a Thief or black humour of The Trouble with Harry and Family Plot(it's not that type of film) and be thankful that it isn't overwrought and stilted like Under Capricorn, Juno and the Paycock and Paradine Case. The story is quite slow but very atmospheric with a suspenseful(in that you wonder whether Logan will betray the confessional's secrets or not) first 40 minutes and reasonably tense climax, like 39 Steps and North By Northwest it is a classic wrong man story with also the idea of guilt seen in Strangers on a Train. The idea of Logan's dilemma throughout the film is one we can relate to, no matter how unfamiliar it was at the time, and it is relevant today I think. Hitchcock's direction is fine, and so are the performances. I can see why people may not like Montgomery Clift's performance, but I loved his brooding intensity and methodical nature for the difficult role he has to do, a similar style of acting to Paul Newman in Torn Curtain but far more convincing. In fact for any of the actors who did any of the brooding intense roles for a Hitchcock film that aren't Cary Grant or James Stewart, I consider Clift one of the better ones. Anne Baxter is very good as a less likable but just as interesting character, while Karl Malden is perfectly cast and Brian Aherne does menacing and sympathetic rather well. All in all, not typical for Hitchcock but it is a great film and his most underrated. 9/10 Bethany Cox
