Ministry of Fear (1944)

A man is released into WWII England after two years in an asylum, but it doesn't seem so sane outside either.

Competent Hitchcock-like espionage thriller with great Noir photography and some surrealist moments.

On a new view: still enjoy this Noir thriller with a sinister, but quite unlikely conspiracy.

Halliwell**: "Little to do with the novel, but a watchable, well-detailed little thriller on Hitchcock lines, once you forgive the usual phoney Hollywood England."

Maltin***: "Atmospheric thriller...; good cast, fines touches by director Lang."
