Herzog has found his ideal interpreter, a performer whose truth lies deep in the artifice of performance: ladies and gentlemen, Nicolas Cage, at his finest. - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

4 Stars - No one is better at this kind of performance than Nicolas Cage. He's a fearless actor. He doesn't care if you think he goes over the top. If a film calls for it, he will crawl to the top hand over hand with bleeding fingernails. - Roger Ebert

- plus on the same bill -

Herzog has gone beyond Good and Evil to reinvent himself as a candidate for the wiggiest director of comedy in America today.

A surreal descent into a twilight zone created by the twisted sensibilities of two cinematic geniuses.
- V.A. Musetto, New York Post

You've got to hand it to Alfred Hitchcock: when he sows the fearful seeds of mistrust in one of his motion pictures he can raise more goose pimples to the square inch of a customer's flesh than any other director of thrillers in Hollywood. - Bosley Crowther, NY Times

One of Hitchcock's best films of the 1940s, Shadow of a Doubt is both a fascinating psychological case study and a scathing portrait of the American middle-class family. - All Movie Guide

- plus on the same bill -

1942, USA, 108 minutes
dir. Alfred Hitchcock, starring Priscilla Lane, Robert Cummings, Otto Kruger, Alan Baxter, Norman Lloyd, Clem Bevans

Its succession of incredible climaxes, its mounting tautness and suspense, its mood of terror and impending doom could have been achieved by no one else. That is a great tribute to a brilliant director. - Variety
