Possibly the slowest Hitchcock!
4 January 1999 | by (Silver Spring, MD, USA) – See all my reviews

Hitchcock himself liked this film, mainly because of certain innovations contained in it; the use of a stream-of-consciousness voice-over, for example. There are some scenes and shots that make MURDER worth seeing, but I must say that this film moves extremely slowly. One reason is the sometimes nearly unbearable amount of space between spoken lines. I understand that Hitchcock was experimenting with improvisation of dialogue, and the result was a movie that drags.
