I watched this for the first time this past week. Decent movie, but I don't think it is Criterion Collection material. While the acting was great, the story itself was highly predictable and weak. In a movie like this one, I expect some plot twists or something crazy and unexpected to happen....and while I waited for it through the whole movie, it never happened. I'm not sad that I saw this movie, or that I own it, but I could have spent my time on something else.

But this has one of the all time great twist endings. With the exception of the music, I think this is an almost perfectly paced thriller. It is slow, but it reveals itself gradually, and just builds towards that ending.

I must be dense, but I'm not seeing anywhere in this film that had a twist. Everything that happened I was more or less expecting. Maybe the girl that got in the car but then had to leave because he used the handkerchief, but other than that I don't know what could have been a surprise in the film. While the ending is good, I wouldn't say that I didn't see it come or expect at least something similar.

I agree with tholly only on the ending not really being a twist. Sure, there are twists and turns throughout the film leading up to that, but here the end is really no more than a choice. Either A, he will trust the killer, or B, he will not, and then inversely A/B on wether or not that was a wise decision. All the possibilities are laid out on the table, and because the film is so excellent in other areas I figure most of the audience has connected with the protagonist by now, and respectively decided for themselves if it is worth it to follow this game through to the end. It really is the most ultimate of climactic moments in just about all filmdom, but only if the film has done its job up until that moment.

That is what makes this film so great tholly, it is just so profoundly provocative to do this dangerous dance with the killer, and all in the name of putting your obsession with the truth to rest. It isn't really a common focus to explore loose ends like this, the type that oh so many films create on a regular basis, and the film is balanced just perfectly enough that we see both sides to taking such a dangerous risk. The antagonist is also perfectly balanced between the indifferent and the sinister, letting us believe the whole thing could go either way. If anything this is a excellent exercise in pondering effective audience manipulation, and in this case it got under my skin like few films do. That moment at the end where he paces back and forth in front of the car was exactly how I was feeling at the time, it was one of the most incredible moments in film history for me, and I simply cannot imagine a Criterion Collection without this film.

Actually come to think of it you are both correct, it's not really a twist ending at all. Having said that though I stand by what I wrote above. Tholly have you tried the American version ever? As I remember it I didn't enjoy it, but from what you wrote above there's a chance you might. It's faster paced if I remember rightly, but it's been so long since I saw it that I can't swear to anything.

I've seen the American version, but it has been so long that I don't really remember it. I'm assuming that having seen the remake first (not know about Criterion at the time) could have influenced my decision against the original. Maybe having experienced the remake made the original seem less surprising to me. But, I will say it is some of the best acting I have seen in a while. If I saw the killer in really life, I might be scared of him and run away, it was that convincing.
