Blast of Silence (rewatch)
Posted by martinteller on July 8, 2012
My dad was visiting, we were trying to decide on something to watch. He said something like “You know a lot about noir, pick out a good one.” I grabbed this and Asphalt Jungle, we went with this because it’s shorter. I wanted to see it again anyway. And I’m glad I did, it’s amazing. I wonder how much (if any) this was an influence on Taxi Driver, with the misanthropic narration and the meticulous preparation of the gun.
Unfortunately, I just really don’t feel like writing at all right now. I’ll write something more in-depth the next time, in the meantime here’s my first review of the film. Rating: Great (94)
