this is by no means a great film, but it's essential for the incredibly intense, internalized acting of montgomery clift.
and that's what so incredible with clift. he could still make thin material like this an unforgettable experience.
it's no accident that brando, james dean, and countless others have named clift their biggest influence.
all potential actors should watch this perfromance, which clift said was inspired by reading kafka and watching chaplin.
it shows.

"I Confess," set in Montreal and starring Montgomery Clift and Anne Baxter, is not one of Hitchcock's finest, but it's still worthy of your entertainment time. The musical score is rather lugubrious but the plot does move along. Clift presents his trademark longsuffering, noble look throughout, resisting the passionate entreaties of Baxter.
Unfortunately, the murderer with his accent somehow reminded me of Bruno Hauptmann, the German immigrant who may have been falsely accused of the Baby Lindbergh murder. (I 'm not giving away the plot; the opening scene reveals who commit the crime.) I don't accuse Hitchcock of national bias, though, as many of his villains are accentless Americans in other films.
A young Karl Malden turns in a fine performance as a detective, part of the strong supporting cast. There are some good scenes of the beautiful capital of Quebec. Recommended.

In the Catholic Church, the confession of sins has one important rule -- no matter what, the priest can never reveal what is said.

As wise as this rule is, it does have a drawback --sometimes a priest is unable to report a serious crime, even though he knows who the culprit is. Alfred Hitchcock tackled this touchy situation in "I Confess," a quiet little thriller that follows a young priest torn between staying true to his faith and being convicted of a crime that he didn't commit.

One night, Father Michael Logan (Montgomery Clift) hears confession for his caretaker Otto Keller (O. E. Hasse). Otto's sin? He tried to rob the house of a local lawyer named Villette, and then killed Villette when he was interrupted. But despite the penance Logan gives him, Otto doesn't return the money or turn himself in, but Logan is still unable to tell the police what he knows.

When a pair of girls report seeing a priest leaving the scene of the crime, Inspector Larue (Karl Malden) begins to suspect that Logan is the killer -- and his suspicions are only increased when Logan can't give himself an alibi.

His ex-girlfriend Ruth (Anne Baxter), now married to a rich politician, comes forward to try to clear the name of the man she still loves. But she inadvertently makes his situation even worse, and convinces the police that Logan is their man. The only one who can prove his innocence is Otto, the man who will do anything to save himself.

"I Confess" stands out among Alfred Hitchcock's films as the most Catholic-influenced, but it isn't really a "religious" film per se.

Great movie. This is about a priest who takes the confession of a murderer. Of course he can't spill the beans. Then the priest
himself is implicated in the murder , but still can't talk. It goes to trial , but the jury finds him not guilty as there is not quite
enough evidence , but the judge takes the unusual measure of chastising the priest and basically pronounces him guilty
despite the not guilty finding. When the priest exits the courtroom the crowd is ( dare I say it ) ready to crucify him. Finally
the murder's wife who knows the score can't take it anymore and blabs. Of interest to Canucks is the fact that it was filmed
in Quebec City , and Hitchcock takes full advantage of the magnificent architecture available. Not as "dark" as most
film noir , but it approaches that status. In glorious black & white. Many of Hitchcock.s films have a sort of plot gimmick
( the birds ( The Birds ) , fear of heights (Vertigo) , helpless lack of mobility ( Rear Window ) ; this is just a good movie.
Highly recommended.

“I confess” (1953) is a film that is difficult to watch, but also regarding. This is not my favorite Hitchcock film, but I am glad I saw it, even though at times it was hard to endure all the things the main character had to go through in order to stay true to his beliefs.

The main character is Father Logan (Montgomery Clift), a priest that becomes the main suspect of a crime. He knows who the real murderer is, but cannot tell that to the police due to the fact that he had been told that in a confession. As circumstantial evidence condemns him, and people accuse him of shameful deeds, will Father Logan tell what he knows, or will he go on suffering, keeping the secret of confession ?

Montgomery Clift is perfect in his portrayal of Father Logan, a man of integrity faced with a crisis of conscience in a very trying situation. You cannot help being affected by the moral dilemma that Father Logan faces, because Clift conveys his anguish and sadness extremely well. You end up asking yourself a very difficult question: what would you do if you were in his place?

“I confess” (1953) is a beautiful film about difficult choices, and staying true to what we believe in. Even though most of this movie is pretty somber, the ending brings a note of hope that leaves the spectator thoughtful but not sad. Of course, recommended...
