quite a good film. my only complaint is that it’s occasionally overly dramatic, but i attribute that more to lang’s roots in silent film than anything else. the few shots where characters look straight into the camera are haunting. it has the potential to be a bit like i am a fugitive from a chain gang, but pulls its punch a bit. it’s not the same caliber of film, but it does have that dark social element to it. as is true in “m” lang exposes the mob mentality that characterizes much of our justice system.
