Even this early in his career, Kubrick showed plenty of signs of what was to come. The plot and acting are pretty ordinary, but the cinematography is outstanding. Great lighting, perfect shot composition, and some unique and artistic visual tricks and touches that all work. The mirror scenes, for example, are so perfect, they nearly look CGI.
If it was 1955 and I had just watched this film for the first time, I would tell you to keep an eye on this young film-maker. He's going places.
