Critic Reviews of "Whirlpool"Time OutOctober 23, 2007
It's a fine example of the way Preminger, on occasion, managed to deflect routine melodrama into something more personal and profound.New York TimesOctober 23, 2007
There is no doubt that people will do strange things under hypnotic spell and that the techniques of hypnotism may be villainously employed. But you don't catch this fairly rational corner believing for one minute the hocuspocus that goes on.Chicago ReaderOctober 23, 2007
Preminger's ambiguous relation to his characters and his sense of moral relativity have seldom been put to such haunting use.CineVueJanuary 17, 2017
Whirlpool's stand-out scene, in which a somnambulant Gene Tierney incriminates herself ... uses the conventions of horror cinema as much as that of noir.Eye for FilmNovember 16, 2015
Ferrer is wonderfully sleazy as Korvo and makes the perfect foil for Tierney.Reel Film ReviewsJune 28, 2010
...a sporadically trashy, thoroughly absurd murder mystery.CinePassionMarch 14, 2010
Very wry, very Viennese satire of psychoanalysis as bourgeois fadOzus' World Movie ReviewsFebruary 08, 2008
Directed with a healthy feel for his twisted characters by Otto Preminger.Film4November 01, 2007
A daft premise does little to detract from the enjoyment of this tense, well-made murder mystery.TV GuideOctober 23, 2007
