  • Defending a Classic

    Amazed so many favor today's PC censorship. The artistry of "The Collector" is maintaining interest and tension throughout two hours with only two characters and not bowing to moral conviction. The movie's ending is honest. Had the filmmakers bowed to the audience expectation of revenge, the film would be just another forgettable episode of "Criminal Minds". To falsely blame it for inspiring others to commit likewise crimes, let's not forget about the big budget "Batman" movies that truly DID inspire someone to embark on a mass massacre. William Wyler's direction, Maurice Jarre's music and the brilliant performances of Stamp and Eggar are all superb. To despise it's excellence is to be awed by - what's truly frightening - today's PC commercial mediocrity.

  • Leonard Lake's favorite film

    Well, I know this was Leonard Lake's favorite movie. He was the guy who, along with Charles Ng, kidnapped and killed numerous people in northern California in the 80's. He was supposed to be have said that this film inspired him. I guess he had a different take on it than the other reviewers here.

  • disturbing

    have to agree with the other comments ... this movie should not be shown and when you think about it songs from 30 years ago are being banned for containing certain lyrics so why shouldn't certain movies be banned too and I am not saying censorship is good but there is nothing of value in seeing The Collector it is a downer movie with a sad subject

  • depressing, nothing good to say about this movie

    I saw this movie on tv last year. I kept watching it until the end, in the hopes that the woman would escape & the sick psycho would die, but it did not happen. A dark, disgusting movie, I can't believe Turner Classic is even showing it, it is definately not a classic. I rate it zero, & wish I had never watched a moment of it. Don't waste your time!

  • Disturbing. A study in psychology.

    I saw this at the movies in 1965 and remember it as being both depressing and disturbing. It's the story of a young man who was unable to interact with other people. It is a dark movie that is rather unforgettable.
