Dial M for Murder

Dial M for Murder ★★★½

7/10

The first two thirds of this film are terrific. The acting, direction, and music really pull you into the story. Its a good Hitchcock film but definitely not in his top five.  The final third of the film is mostly spend explains the first two thirds. It really took me out of the film until the conclusion.

Grace Kelly is terrific and every time I see her in a film I think to myself how she is so stunningly beautiful. Ray Milland is fantastic as the murderous, cunning husband.

It’s definitely a film that’s worth it for Hitchcock fans, but I’ll warn you now that it drags towards the end.
