The Killing

The Killing (Stanley Kubrick, 1956) from Lionel White's novel Clean Break; Sterling Hayden, Coleen Gray, Vince Edwards

Crooks plan and execute a daring race-track robbery.

There’s nothing new I can say about Kubrick’s early film. It’s a tight, brilliant, very satisfying movie. (The 'killing' is not literal; it's a metaphor.)
