    you know you've scraped the bottom of the barrel in the gangster movie genre when you wind up watching this.

    The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

    ★★★★½

    greed is a slow spiral.

    bogie seems to steal the show: with every scene, the humanity drains out of his eyes, the desert seeming much harsher, phantom threats amplified and turned into reality.

    in the aftermath, the victors of the spoils have something more precious than the gold they sought: they also retain what should've long been lost on their journey, their very souls.

    if i could go back to the day i watched this and watch it again, just to experience the same level of emotion i did the first time, i would. perfection doesn't even begin to describe this film.

    i laughed for a solid five minutes at the mental image of a rat shooting out of an aqueduct at incredibly high velocity.
