Movie Reviews

Straight beauty
Antoine BOSSON | VEYRIER France | 09/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"god bless dvd, at last we can enjoy great Athony Mann's masterpieces. Westerns like "the man from Laramie", and films noir such as "T-men" and "raw deal". "Strange impersonnation" is a strong thing, almost fantastic. Enjoy especially the photography of cinematographer John Alton which uses constrasts of black and white, amazing shadows and lightnings. It's action, beauty of violence and feelings.Don't miss."

"Skin deep is not deep enough. Jealousy, murder, plastic surgery and revenge in a Hitchcockian tour de force from Director Anthony Mann ("El Cid," "Desperate," "Bamboo Blond," "God's Little Acre"). Mann was widely praised for his meticulous eye for detail and his instinctive sense of mise en scene which he prominently shows in "Strange Impersonation." The radiant and beautiful Brenda Marshall is a scientist who spurns marriage for her pioneering breakthroughs in the science of anesthetics. That's right, anesthetics. But YOU won't fall asleep watching this very surreal, sly, primitive, artful but low budget tale with a stunning, surprise ending. (Full Screen, B&W, 68 minutes, Not Rated)..."

Haunting Doppelganger
Frederick G. Chase | Laredo, TX United States | 02/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Eerie identity loss, transference--the other self. Surreal effect heightened by B budget and inappropriate music. Subtle and thought-provoking use of image echos, mirrors, and shadows. Right up there with noir's other great doppelganger movies, The Scar (Hollow Triumph) and Desert Fury."
