Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Torn Curtain (1966)

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Starring Paul Newman, Julie Andrews, Lila Kedrova, Hansjörg Felmy


Decent spy thriller. Dark and suspenseful, which you can chalk up to Hitchcock.

The setting is interesting. This is barely a generation after WWII, things are still kind of fresh. I like all the German language. You don’t have to know what they’re saying in these scenes, and it really gives you a authentic feel of being there.

Newman’s cool, even when he has to play a nerd. Andrews was a cutie.
