Notorious ★★★★★

One of those rare occasions where everyone in front of and behind the camera are at the top of their game: incredibly assured and nuanced performances from Grant, Bergman, Rains and especially Konstantin as the disturbingly involved mother figure. Sports a knockout script from Hecht, pitch perfect cinematography from Tetzlaff, and preternaturally taut, multilayered direction from Hitchcock.
