I Confess (1953) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Thriller)

It’s one of the most under-rated films directed by Alfred Hitchcock. You will find more written about his other movies rather than “I Confess” in books and articles on his style of film making. But the film is truly a memorable experience as it includes thrill and emotions in the right dosages. The film got mixed reviews at the time of its release as it was way ahead of its time.

The amazing feature of the movie is that the viewer is shown the murder and the murderer right in the first scene itself and then the killer also confesses to the priest for his crime. But interestingly when the suspicion shifts on to the priest himself who had heard the confession, then just imagine the restlessness felt by the priest, as he knows the truth, but ethically cannot speak for himself.
 
Hitchcock romantically uses flashback in the story which gives a soft touch to an otherwise crime movie. The climax is brilliantly written and directed, saving the priest by the changing circumstances alone and he doesn’t has to break his vow. The movie proves the mastery Hitchcock had in choosing his stories and subjects right from his start. A must see for all Hitchcock fans and lovers of quality thrillers.
