    Where the Sidewalk Ends

    ★★★½

    The quandary inherent of becoming the very thing you hate, and Andrews' Detective Dixon's got plenty of hate to spare as evidenced by his innumerable violent brush-ins that have landed him squarely in his precinct's hot seat, his latest the worst of all albeit of an accidental nature.

Widmark perfectly embodies the infectious, childlike temperament of Fabian's that proves time and again he's undeniably got a way with scummy coercion, yet he's so intoxicated by the notion of finally succeeding that he throws blinders on to those he crosses sealing his fate on…
