Dial M for Murder

Dial M for Murder ★★★★

"People don't commit murder on credit."

Dial M for Murder is one of Hitchcock's simplest, yet one of his most entertaining movies. As with other Hitchcock classics, Dial M for Murder deals with his obsession with the 'perfect murder', but takes an unexpected turn. The thing I love most about this movie is that, much in the same way as Rope (1948), the story is told from the perspective of the accomplice. This is done in such a ingenious way, that at one point you come close to even rooting for Tony Wendice's (Ray Milland) plan to succeed.
