Ratings & Reviews

view all
  • It's yet another serial killer movie, a plot element that by this point in time, far from being disturbing or fascinating, is just plain dull.

  • In this, Alfred Hitchcock's centenary year, Felicia's Journey so startlingly channels the obsessions of the late director that it might be the greatest Hitchcock movie the master of suspense never made.

  • A rare example of a literary film that preserves the best of its source while creatively filling up on it.
