Excellent Ford, 26 Jan. 2008
I watched this film on DVD lately and it struck me how the old films were story driven. They didn't need all the special effects and camera tricks to tell a great story. This is the essense of great film-making so often forgotten today.
A film is as good as its story. Special effects etc.. like in Lord of the Rings are only icing on the cake to an already strong story. The Informer is an excellent film for its time, and for anyone who loves real filmaking.
