Reviews

Dial M for Murder has a romping plot, a gloriously slimy villain and – thanks to the fact that (as in Rope before and Rear Window after) the action is mostly constrained to one room – some of the weirdest, tricksiest camera work of Hitchcock’s career.”
– The Guardian

“Among the most purely enjoyable features the director ever helmed!”
– Slant

“The film is confined almost entirely to a cramped apartment set—a constricted space that takes on a highly expressive quality in the picture's original 3-D version.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“This sharp 3D restoration is a cool refresher for audiences weary of seeing the technology applied to mutants and doomsday scenarios.”
– Guy Lodge, Time Out

“By far the most VISUALLY COMPELLING of studio stereoscopic movies.”
– J. Hoberman, Village Voice
