The Killing (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on August 21, 2011

Just going to keep this short, it’s late and I’ve got some stuff to do before I can go to bed.  Terrific noir, one of the best heist-gone-wrong flicks with memorable turns by Sterling Hayden, Tim Carey, Elisha Cook and especially the amazing Marie Windsor.  The fragmented chronology is a curious touch, maybe not entirely necessary but it keeps things interesting.  A lot of people seem to bitch about the voiceover, but the more noir you watch, the more you get used to that sort of thing.  Rating: Very Good
