Fritz Lang United States, 1936

Log Lady's rating of the film Fury

Examines mob mentality that often leads to physical crimes, which are perpetrated by two-faced cowards posing as respectful citizens. A good and sharp start for Lang's Hollywood career, but there's a lingering sense of studio involvement, particularly in the saccharine ending. A slightly more pallid version of Lang's later film noirs, but the camerawork, acting, lighting, and smooth direction save a great deal.
