    ★★★★½

    This is the last movie I'm watching in the place I've lived at for over ten years. Leaving off on one of the best Jack Kirby adaptations (in visual spirit if not in total source of straight-faced psychedelic-fueled pulp splendor) is a good one to go out on, I think.

    "So horribly sad. How is it I feel like laughing?"

    Seriously, it's a strange thing for me to give this 5 stars because it almost feels like a duty to do so because of its status as a classic thriller and for its set pieces... actually that's not really true, but I'll get to what I love about the movie in a moment.
