Rating: 2/5 -- completely misinterprets the joys of film noir Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- The subjective camera gimmick wears thin after a while. Montgomery is too light for Marlowe.

Rating: 7/10 -- ...the movie is different, and one can hardly say that Lady in the Lake is anything less than entertaining for most of its running time. Full Review

Rating: B -- Chandler's story, which might be his finest, somehow comes through this gimmicky filmmaking experiment intact enough though much scathed. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Flawed but brilliant experiment by Montgomery using a subjective camera. Extraordinary musical track, too.
