The Reviews for I Confess (1953) 1080p


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.

Nos Deux ConsciencesReviewed bybkoganbingVote: 7/10

I Confess's story takes place in Quebec City, Canada is adapted from the French story Nos Deux Consciences. And the whole thing is about a priest's conscience. Does he keep his vows even at the cost of his own freedom and maybe his life, certainly his reputation.

That is what Montgomery Clift is faced with. German actor O.E. Hasse who Clift worked with on The Big Lift is the caretaker of a church where Clift is assigned. He takes the priest's garments and commits murder in them. And then offers confession to Clift. Clift knows the murder victim as well and could have his own reason for doing him harm. Of course police detective Karl Malden suspects him.

How this all gets resolved is the plot of the story. But let me give you a hint. The title of the original story is Our Two Consciences. And the consciences referred to are Monty Clift's and someone else's.

Clift and the rest of the cast do a fine job in this minor Alfred Hitchcock film. But the acting honors in this go to O.E. Hasse, an really oily malevolent villain who is enjoying the predicament he's put the priest in. You won't forget him.

Fans of Hitchcock and Clift will be entertained and others will enjoy it as well.

Intriguing and thrilling movie by the Master of Suspense in which a good priest is accused of killingReviewed byma-cortesVote: 7/10

Entertaining suspense movie packs thrills ,intrigue , tension and ordinary Hitch touches . Indispensable seeing this quintessential Hitch movie , demanding various viewings . Classic and haunting suspense by the master himself , Hitchcock , dealing with tragic events when a priest (Montgomery Clift) takes confession from a man who coincidentally killed a blackmailer who he knew of pre-vows relationship with a married woman (Anne Baxter). Refusing to give into police investigators' questions of suspicion, due to the seal of confession, the Father becomes the prime suspect in a murder. The murderer is called Otto Kellar (O.E.Hasse) and his wife Alma (Dolly Haas) work as caretaker and housekeeper at a Catholic church in Quebec . Meanwhile , the priest named Fr. Michael Logan walking through the town, passes in front of a cinema showing ¨The enforcer¨.

Interesting Hitch film shot in Canada's colorful Quebec by Warner Bros , being based on the 1902 play "Nos Deux consciences" by Paul Anthelme, but little is known about any production of the play. However , in the original play, the priest was hanged ; this scene had to be eliminated and replaced with another scene to avoid the wrath of the censor. Alfred Hitchcock's films have become famous for a number of elements and iconography : innocent men wrongfully accused, blonde women , long non-dialogue sequences, etc . Hitch apparently decided to leave this movie location unspecific and without recognizable landmarks and filmed it in the city of Quebec . In spite of some shortcoming , this is the picture that best reflects many of Hitchcock's puritanical ethics . Hitch plays on the senses and keeps the suspense and action in feverish pitch . All the elements for a suspenseful evening are in place and things move at an intelligent pace . The story is typical Hitch fare , an issue of wrong accusation , dual guilt , and treason that embroils a man in murder . Hitch had two of most charming actors of all Hollywood as Montgomery Clift and Anne Baxter . As a pretty good acting by Montgomery Clift as a priest falsely framed of killing and Anne Baxter as his old friend who cannot handle the situation wrought in her life by the gross injustice . Montgomery Clift drank during the shooting and his eyes appear glazed during the ferry scene , Hitchcock was a very non-confrontational director and delegated an assistant director and Karl Malden to talk to the actor about it . Supporting cast is frankly excellent such as Karl Malden as Inspector Larrue , Brian Aherne as prosecutor Willy Robertson , O.E. Hasse as Otto Keller , Roger Dann as Pierre Grandfort and Dolly Haas played Alma Keller in this film ; Haas was selected to play "Alma" Keller, because of her physical resemblance to Hitchcock's wife Alma Reville . As usual , Hitch's cameo as man walking , as he is uncredited crossing the Top of Long Staircase . Atmospheric and moody cinematography in evocative style by Robert Burks , Hitch's ordinary . Very good sets and production design by Haworth and Beckman . Riveting and thrilling musical score by classic Dimitri Tiomkin .

The motion picture was well directed by Alfred Hitchcock , he was famous for making his actors follow the script to the word, but in this movie the Hitch's method filmmaking clashing with Clift's method interpretation and the result falls short of the Master of Suspense's best pictures and never quite comes off at all . This is one of Hitch's most stylish and discussed films and will keep you riveted and excited until the edge-of-your-seat .
