I Confess - 7

This is an amazing film. Not only is it directed by Hitchcock, but the story is subtle and intriguing. A murder is confessed to, Michael Logan (Montgomery Clift),a catholic priest. Logan then must keep the man confidence, even as he becomes the prime suspect, the only way to clear his name casts more suspicion and doubt, as his alibi is a former love (Anne Baxter- a great performance), from before his days as a priest. The only way for the truth to come to light is if the real murder will confess. Like most of Hitchcock's films, I Confess hovers between genre's using elements from noir, suspense, and drama to tell this intricate story, that keeps you guessing. This is a must-see.

For what it's worth, Baxter is my Hollywood dream woman.
