"A remake of Renoir's La Chienne of 1931, and a key psychological film noir, [Scarlet Street] is one of Holly wood's most tortuous and bleak visions of the delusive power of the imagination...The film, taking representation and perception as its dominant themes, practically begs for close textual analysis while rushing headlong towards its subversive climax..."
