    "Ah, what's the difference..."

    Perhaps the greatest "unsung" movie line in history.

    I wasn't so crazy about this this time around but it's still great to watch. Oh, and the ending...

    I'm a sucker for heist movies, and this is one of the best. The film is as intricately constructed as the caper that is depicted. With it's great use of character actors, great dialogue and brilliant direction this is essential viewing.

    Definitely of the most intense gritty film-noirs. A must see for genre and Kubrick fans!

    Al right, it is a Kubrick film. a brilliant Heist film, Fast Cuts, Tracking Shots and other innovative Camera Angle, expensive looking sets, smart use of non-linear narration and a dozen other attractive elements.

    So, What, this is cliché, there was nothing in this movie, I haven't seen before.

    But wait, this came in 1956. What I have seen came decades later.

    Their lies the brilliance, this film is decades ahead of his time and a huge leap in film making for the time being. A Smart film that makes other better films of the 1950s look dated.

    On a side note the ending is outstanding. Easily one of the best endings of recent memory.

    This was pretty good. I have a tough time with noir, but I recently discovered it's detective-based noir I dislike most. Noir-style stories that aren't centered around detectives, such as Sunset Blvd., Double Indemnity, and In a Lonely Place, fare much better with me. I wasn't struck by this the way I was any of those, and I was fully aware throughout that this was someone TRYING to make a noir film -- a lot of the dialogue seemed almost…

    The heist and payoff in this noir classic are wonderful but the pulpy characters and dialogue haven't aged well.
