4.0 out of 5 stars WHAT'S WORST THAN A KLEPTOMANIAC? A HYPNOTISED KLEPTOMANIAC!, January 25, 2006
This review is from: Whirlpool (DVD)
"Whirlpool" is a swirl of hypnotizing deceit, revenge, and murder. The beautiful Gene Tierney plays the kleptomaniac rich wife of psychiatrist, Richard Conte, who falls prey to the evil intentions of hypnotist, Jose Ferrer. Otto Preminger directs this film noir drama, that keeps the viewers attention throughout. Jose Ferrer is especially entertaining as the menacing hypnotist, who uses Gene Tierney to do his dirty work. This movie is a classic who-done-it, which had me knowing who must have obviously done it, but wondering "how" or "who" they used to do it. This one has a great conclusion at the end of the picture. "Whirlpool" is the ninth volume in the "Fox Film Noir" series and a very good addition. I highly recommend "Whirlpool" to film noir and Gene Tierney fans, and also recommend Otto Preminger's masterpiece "Laura" and the Fox Studio Classics release "Leave Her To Heaven," a story of psychotic obsession, also starring the lovely Gene Tierney.

Thank you! This was a great review! I was trying to decided which movie to get. "Where the Sidewalk Ends," or "Whirlpool." I've decided on this one. The moment I laid eyes on "Laura," I knew that movie was something special. And the lovely Gene Tierney, what can you say? I also enjoyed Dana Andrews as the detective. My local movie channel showed "Laura." I fell in love with this masterpiece. I was riveted to my TV. screen. I had to have it for my collection! So "Whirlpool," is the ninth film in "Fox Film Noir" series?" I wonder which others I have missed.
I am a classic movie freak. Few things thrills me more than getting lost in a great movie with an amazing plot, atmosphere, storytelling, dialogue, camerawork, directorship, cinematography etc. The way certain moods are captured in movies fascinates me! I love film noir becaue of its foreboding sense of danger.

Thank you, WearyWalker, for your comment on my review of the suspense noir classic "Whirlpool." Your comment has encouraged me to continue writing reviews of films that I have enjoyed watching and adding to my classic DVD library. I wasn't sure if anyone was even reading these "reviews" anymore, for I don't get many comments, like I once did a few years ago, so thanks for your comment. If you enjoyed the wonderful "Laura," and it sounds like you really did, then you will also enjoy "Whirlpool," too! I also highly recommend that you see (and add to you collection!) Gene Tierney's "Leave Her To Heaven," which is also VERY good! Thanks again fellow "classic movie" fan and collector!!
