Movie Reviews

Finally on DVD!

"I love this film! I write mysteries and in my mind this is one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever seen. I have been trying to find it for about a year after I finally remembered the name "The Hidden Room" but had no idea it was also called "Obsession". The cat and mouse game between the husband and the Scotland Yard detective is priceless and the relationship that developes between the husband and his wife's lover is so well crafted it is seamless. I saw it years and years ago and it has always remained in the back of my mind. I highly recommend this film."

"Quite accidently, I stumbled onto this film. What a great story, and good cast. A tidy little noir from our English cousins!

But the quality of this DVD is not that impressive. Sharpness and contrast are not the worse I've ever seen; but certainly doesn't look much better than an Alpha release at times. (Who is WHAM USA, anyway???)

Despite the fact that it is single layered, the DVD offers no extras with the exception of a very lame slide show of images from the film that I suppose are to take the place of genuine stills. Truly a disappointment of a release and a shame as the film is prime noir. The only real incentives to purchase it is the outstanding quality of the film , story and cast, and the fact that it's relatively cheap at the moment.

"This is a fasinating and unusual mystery from Britain. I've seen a lot of mysteries and this strikes me as very original . I definitely recommend it to fans of film noir."
