Critic Reviews of "Laura"GuardianFebruary 23, 2012
Laura is still every bit as gripping in 2012.Little White LiesFebruary 23, 2012
Not only one of Preminger's greatest, but one of the great noirs.Time OutDecember 20, 2011
Few movies make you feel dirtier, and so perversely grateful for the pleasure.TIME MagazineApril 20, 2009
A highly polished and debonair whodunit.Chicago ReaderOctober 23, 2007
Less a crime film than a study in levels of obsession, Laura is one of those classic works that leave their subject matter behind and live on the strength of their seductive style.Village VoiceOctober 23, 2007
A hypnotic and deathlessly interpretable experience.Antagony & EcstasyDecember 17, 2016
It's one of the smartest of all noirs, and thus among the most enticingly savage and dangerous.Seanax.comFebruary 12, 2016
Laura (1944) is elegance incarnate in a genre known for its hard edge, the sleekest, silkiest noir of all.CinePassionJuly 15, 2013
A feverish trance wrapped in a deadpan investigationSenses of CinemaMarch 21, 2013
Preminger deals in facades, with how perception cheats us, right down to the ideal image of Laura as a portrait. (Cinémathèque Annotations on Film)EmanuelLevy.ComApril 25, 2012
Masterpiece: with time, Preminger's second film has become richer in texture and deeper, more ambiguous in meaning than most noirs of the 1940s.Observer (UK)February 25, 2012
Preminger made darker, more characteristically noir films than this, but his only movie that's as good, or perhaps better, is Anatomy of a Murder.
