The Killers

Don Siegel Estados Unidos, 1964

Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Código del hampa

It doesn't work all the time, but when it does it soars. Don Siegel is one hell of a director and his version of The Killers, although lacking the existential and poetic contours of Hemingway's short story, somewhat started propelling the gritty and nihilistic crime thriller boom that eventually defined the '70s.
