"Like many, I have loved this thriller of conscience and betrayal most of my moviegoing life."- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"A lot funnier than you remember it, Carol Reed's immortal 1949 film noir seems to exist in the space between two worlds: an earlier time when thrillers were mostly serious affairs, and a future one, when such supremely witty entertainment felt passé."- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
