    This movie was made to criticize the glorification of the gangster lifestyle. By the time the remake of this movie was made nothing was left but the glorification of hyper violence, drugs, and objectifying women. Notice how in this movie by the time he dies, he has lost everything. In the remake he gets to go out in a blaze of glory with some really great lines. I won't deny being guilty of a thirst for blood and depravity. But I appreciate that this movie was trying to say something. 7 years ago

    Muni and Raft are terrific in this overheated gangster classic liberally seasoned with violence, car chases, and incestuous desire. A great ride for fans of classic gangster films! 8 years 11 months ago

    I felt like I needed subtitles to understand some of the 'gangster' accents. But it's easily my favorite pre-code film with an outstanding performance by Muni. 6 years 9 months ago
