pretty crappy version of a good story. here’s a funny story: this film is on a double-sided disc because it’s so goddamn long. i put the dvd in on side a and started watching it. the film seemed to lack characterization, but i just kept watching. an hour later the film was over and i knew something was wrong. flipped the disc over and get the first half of the film. dvd is labeled wrong, oh well.
the makeup is good, the lighting is bad. carol reed is way overrated, even if he did direct the third man.Watched on TV
