    Blimey what a bleak film. Corruption, violence and alcoholism. Not made by the Russian tourist board this one.

    I do like a slow burn movie with plenty of ambiguity. Very good.

    Rewatched because my daughter wants to see ' the classic horrors'. This is a truly great film. I'm always surprised how much is character development and tension building with relatively little horror until the end.

    A genuine (largely) unrecognised gem of a film. This is the Twilight Time bluray which not only looks great but has a very enjoyable commentary. I knew nothing about the blacklisting before watching this and the film explains it simply but very effectively.

    Woody deserved much more credit than he got for his performance and Zero Mostel is just stunning, especially in his heartbreaking later scenes.
