Not as bad as one might fear
Late Hitchcock spy thriller that is nowhere near as bad as its reputation as “one of Hitchcock’s worst” would lead you to believe. Although Hitchcock would have been better served to discontinue use of rear projection shots (they are distracting and, quite frankly, silly and cheap looking,) Torn Curtain does contain a few wonderful scenes. Look out for the show stealing performance by Wolfgang Kieling as Gromek, Newman’s designated body guard in East Germany. Recommended.
