Shadow of a Doubt

Saw Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt a couple of weeks ago. This is a very highly rated film;it’s on the IMDB top 250 and has been there as long for at least several years. While I didn’t dislike the film, I don’t understand this high a rating. It has a lot of good points but it wasn’t really suspenseful for me,(which is what I expect from a Hitchcock film, and the characters didn’t capture my sympathies all that much.
There are a lot of good things in the film. The acting is good. I thought Macdonald Carey was especially good. Some of his lines were very corny if you think about them but he delivered them in a way to avoid seeming so.
I think I should see this again because I can’t really come up with anything wrong about it. I just didn’t come away feeling like I’d seen a great film.
