Italian thriller "The Double Hour" from first time director Giuseppe Capotondi lands on iTunes and DVD Tuesday. The film debuted at Venice in 2009, where the film's star Ksenia Rappoport won the Best Actress prize. The film went on to earn a warm reception on the global fest circuit by its limited theatrical release in April 2011. It sits at 83% on the Tomatometer.

Check out some reviews below.

Minneapolis Tribune says: "Capotondi's nerve-shredding puzzler will delight fans of Hitchcock and Polanski."

Arizona Republic says: "a tremendously entertaining take on film noir, with all the usual elements of the genre in play - crime, death, possibly murder and doomed romance."

Chicago Tribune: "I've seen the fabulously acted Italian thriller "The Double Hour" twice now, and for all its intricate manipulations, it stays with me for a very simple reason: The love story at its bittersweet heart is played for keeps."

Los Angeles Times: "It's a wild tale that's so full of surprises, reversals and double-jointed plot twists that you wouldn't think there'd be room for anything else. But there is."

New York Times: "the best movie of its kind since the French director Guillaume Canet's hit from 2006, 'Tell No One.'"

EW: "Nothing in this enjoyably twisty, cool/hot, genre-grafting Italian psychological thriller by Giuseppe Capotondi is what it seems. And the more you try to solve the narrative puzzle, the more you may want to watch it again — or at least argue about what's real."
