    Great screenplay.
    Great performances.
    Great cinematography.
    Full of amazing one-liners.
    For anyone who wants to be lured by the style of film noir, this is the film to watch.

    One of the finest noirs ever made as well as the "best cigarette smoking movie ever made". Ebert said that and I quite agree, adds to the mood and atmosphere. 4 years 4 months ago
