Brilliant film, indifferent DVD
on 23 January 2007
They say you get what you pay for. This is a superior crime thriller notable for the intricacy of its plot, the acid wit of the script and above all the superb moonlit black and white cinematography.
Potential buyers of this cheap Network DVD version should note that the picture, though acceptable, is not as sharp as it might be and the sound is generally poor. There appears to have have been minimal, if any, effort at restoration. Happily, there is at the time of writing a Criterion version soon to be released. I for one will upgrade.
