Willed Dafoe is about to be robbed, isn't he? The colors in this film, oh wow. And the acting! Just a lovely ride of a film.
Perfection. A study in blocking and camera movement. The deep space. The POVs. Maybe the best use of zooms in a more subtle style. I mean Haskell Wexler just did the fucking thing, it's just incredible.
And the script, goddamn! Sharp, crisp, it feels fresh even in 2017. It's just so perfectly layered and a playground for the amazing cast. Steiger earned that Oscar win but Poitier is just a star. And everyone around them are just pitch perfect.
