An early Kubrick directed film you won't likely find elsewhere
This film has typically intriguing moments built into the whole movie that I would characterize as standalone products. Each of them eventually coming together to form the complete movie, which won't surprise any Kubrick fan. It's hard to discuss much of the film without giving anything away, so I will avoid doing that with one exception.
If you like the old fashioned wrestling TV shows that looked rough but somewhat staged, with the bouncy wrestling ring and big lugs tossing each other around the ring there is something in this awesome noir film for you to get a kick out of. Only there's no wrestling ring so I haven't given anything away.. Aside from that just sit back and enjoy watching the pieces of the puzzle fall together as you try and predict what happens.
