    There is so much craziness going on in this movie that the basic idea of a man being arrested and tried for an unnamed crime gets lost. It would have been more effective if the characters in the movie otherwise appeared to be normal, and if it had been a shorter film.

    I had a chance to see this movie when it was shown on TCM in 2007.I was totally blown away by this movie.It's one of those movies that if you miss a few minutes of it you won't have a clue what is happening.I think Perkins is great.I think his greatest performance outside of course Pyscho.I see why Welles called it his personal best.I would have loved to have seen this movie on a big movie screen.The way it was shot, the direction and mapped is stunning to me.The scene seemed to go on forever.The way Tony Perkins seems to normal is a basically confusing world is outstanding.The way one scene melts into another and another and another is mind blowing.It's not an easy movie to explain but it's truly a masterpiece.

    The scenes were so bizarre that they appeared to be taking place in a dream. I tuned in shortly after the film began so I wasn't sure that I had not missed an important part that would have explained the weird circumstances. After reading the Full synopsis, I realize it wouldn't have made a difference. Strange movie but fascinating! I wanted to shake everybody who "knew" the facts but wouldn't tell him!! Hahaha.
