I Confess Review


Good
Montgomery Clift's staid performance is arguably the best thing about I Confess, a minor work in Hitchcock's canon, and that isn't saying much. Here Clift plays a quiet priest with a dilemma: He's been the recipient of a murderer's confession, and now he himself is suspected of the crime.

Does Clift confess or does he maintain his vow of silence with respect to confessions of his parishioners? This issue has been studied at length in the Law & Orders of the world, and they all end the same: Priest/lawyer/psychiatrist keeps the vow of silence until the very end, when the accused either comes forward and confesses or is convicted by some other means at the very last second.

The Innocents Review


Good
Based on Henry James's The Turn of the Screw, this creepy but ultimately perplexing thriller was one of the first films designed to scare you without showing, say, severed limbs and nonstop gore. The Innocents features a wide-eyed Deborah Kerr as a governess sent to a stately manor where she will care for two children. When they start communicating with ghosts, demons, dead people, the devil -- what they are, we'll never find it -- the poor governess comes unhinged. Not altogether frightening, but it has a few creep-out moments that mostly redeem its totally ambiguous ending.
