Shadow of a Doubt

Shadow of a Doubt ★★★★★

Skillfully crafted psychological thriller about an insidious evil worming it's way into an all American family. This is one of Hitchcock's very best films. It's suttle in all the right ways; allowing the darkness to invade almost every scene, while showcasing a cast of very well defined characters. Joseph Cotten heads the cast with a brilliantly evil performance. Despite being almost eighty years old, the film stands the test of time because the story is so timeless. It's a shame Hitchcock couldn't give us the ultimate pitch black ending that the film deserved (probably not allowed) but this is still absolute top drawer cinema.
