The Killing (1956) by Kubrick

Short review.

I am not a fan of Kubrick, but his genius i can’t deny.

I just finished his 1956 film The Killing, which is done brilliantly.
No surprise it influenced both of our best contemporary directors Nolan and Tarantino (Dark knight and Reservoir Dogs, respectively).

Morally strong and not without societal criticism, this film uses complicated Dolly compositions to show us our plans might not work as we planned.

Shame it did not bring big monetary success in it’s day.

Reminds of the TOWER trump card.
