Notorious (1946)

The Hitchcock film Notorious is a well made spy film from 1946. Every shot is gorgeous, the perspective is meticulous, the suspense palpable. The love story between the two spies is more interesting than the politics, but the audience is given credit for being smart enough to need more than a classic love triangle. Ingrid Bergman plays her Mata Harri character smart, sexy and sweet. Cary Grant has that strong, smouldering thing going on. The music and costumes are the bow that ties this package up nicely. A film well worth seeing.
