ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Sweet Smell of Success

Wow. just wow. The jazz like rhythm, the awesome score, the performances, the individual great scenes, the script and dialogue and that ending. Only a film this insane can be this great. Undoubtedly influential on Scorsese especially Mean Streets. Plus, Susan Harrison is maybe the single most dazzling woman in any noir. In all, it ranks along with Touch of Evil as my favorite noir.
