Critics reviews

It might not have been made to be a movie with marijuana in mind (though Mitchum was busted for it in 1948 – did two months’ time and was released in 1949) but this is a pot-smoker’s movie, a stoner noir with a knotty plot and loads of characters doing weird shit – characters who seem, not just stoned, but who make you feel stoned once you settle into the thing.

In John Farrow’s shamefully entertaining His Kind of Woman (1951), a lunatic noir that unravels like a tourist slipping into a feverish, tequila-laced delirium, Mitchum ambles around a chichi Mexican resort half-heartedly trying to figure out what the hell he’s doing there.
