Some Came Running

Some Came Running ★★★★½

Pure pain. Wholesome smalltown America implodes in an acid-sharp miasma of secrets, grudges, suffering, cruelty and crippling self-absorption, this is astonishingly dark and subversive for 1958. Amazing Elmer Bernstein score, very fun Sinatra/Martin homoeroticism and an utterly unreal, heartbreaking Shirley MacLaine performance that steals the movie.
