They don't make them like this anymore...By FairLucyRose (4 reviews) , 18 Apr 2013Well written and moves along at a good pace for a 1945 film. Gregory Peck looks young! He and Ingrid Bergman are great as the leading characters. And of course - because it's a Hitchcock movie - there's a twist at the very end!
Spellbound..? Positively!!!By Beansy68 (5 reviews) , 17 Aug 2011Hitchcock showing the vulnerable side of man and the strength of woman.Superbly atmospheric and dramatic. Mesmerising and engaging to the very end!Bravo!!
hitchcock freud and dali- an unholy trinityBy lukasz84 (75 reviews) , 10 Aug 2011in 'spellbound' the classic hitchcock recipe is seasoned with freudian and surrealists elements to offer a delightful cinematic experience.
the narrative flow, suspense build up, dialogue and character are all masterfully handled by hitchcock's assured and enthusiastic direction.
for all the dreadful abyss of the unconscious lurking everywhere, hitchcock never forgets the importance of humour
that keeps the picture in a fine equilibrium.
dead or aliveBy juradino (811 reviews) from London , 09 Jun 2011Who is who and what goes on in the world of psychoanalysts is mysteriously portrayed in this classic psychological thriller. They talk a lot and as plot thickens mystery deepens until the final reels of the film. Splendid acting and a suggestion that surrealist art might have been product of a disturbed, diseased or criminal mind. Most saccharine happy ending ever.
SpellboundBy Miriam from Ealing, London , 22 May 2011An enchanting love story with an Oscar winning theme music.
What a wonderful actress Ingrid Bergman was.
One of my favourite Hitchcock films with several fearful, heart-pounding moments.
