07.01.06DVD Poor Gene Tierney... Knowing how her life ended up when going into this movie gives the whole thing a rather morbid undertone since she spends a good deal of time in here thinking she's crazy... but really it's just nasty old Jose Ferrar messing with her subconsciouss in a big message to audiences: don't let anyone hypnotize you. Watching this movie, the big feeling I got is that I haven't seen enough Preminger to really get his style... I've seen a good 4 or 5 of his movies now but still can't put my finger on what makes his movies his... aside from a consistency of quality. Even so, I'd say this one was kind of a minor effort in his ouvre... a decent story, actors I like, but it's one I'll probably remember very little of a few months from now. Unless I'm hypnotised and ordered to love it.
