Fritz Lang United States, 1936

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Fury

Fritz Lang's fatalistic drama is very dated in some respects, but also surprisingly modern in its cynical depiction of the media and criminal justice system. The far-fetched plot is often heavy-handed, but Lang's taut direction and strong performances make it worth watching, even if it falls short of the classic it's been described to be.
