The silk over steel voice of Gregory’s calculated manipulation of Paula is horrifying. The emotional displays from Paula are gut wrenching. The events in this film are a horrible beauty, amidst gorgeous settings and exquisite costumes. Truly a marvel that stands the test of time. 10/10.
There’s a reason the term ‘Gaslighting‘ is named after this story. The performances in this version are incredible: Ingrid Bergman’s Oscar-winning portraying is captivating; Charles Boyer is creepy and insidious. This is not a comfortable film to watch, but it is a work of art. 10/10.
