The Killing

Stanley Kubrick’s all-time great caper film is a taut, fast paced thriller with a wonderfully seedy cast (Elisha Cook, Jr., Marie Windsor and Vince Edwards). Lucien Ballard’s fluid camerawork uses the tiny sets to best advantage, creating a claustrophobic, low-budget masterpiece. Sterling Hayden is the stoic race-track heist mastermind “finally dismayed by the dollar bills winnowed in aircraft slipstream.” – David Thomson
