Out of the Past

Out of the Past ★★★★★

God DAMN that was good. While it faltered for a brief moment when it shifted perspectives, I get why they had to do it and what required the exposition - didn’t take away from that black-as-sin finale or its absolutely haunting coda. Every actor is played to their strengths, and most importantly it has that rare thing Mitchum brought to his greatest characters, even the bad guys: spine.
