Terrific movie. This time through I was impressed by how director Joseph Losey and cinematographer Ernest Laszlo frequently captured the Fritz Lang feel. This has to do with the shots chosen, the length of time they're held, the angles, the sound or lack thereof. To me this feel is "spooky". I was impressed with David Wayne's great physical performance and by the depth of the finale. The locations are terrific.
The film didn't make it into the Blackboard list, maybe because no good print was available at that time.
