  1. gld48's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    A little formulaic but still great - Kubrick does noir really well. Made on a shoestring, he didn't have a permit for most of the exteriors so most of the shots in Times Square, Penn Station were "illegal". It's obviously polar opposites from his later work but damn, this movie was good. The boxing scene and the showdown at the end were fantastic, Kubrick really loved violence. Exceptional lighting too on this one.

  2. Ethan's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    This is a nice little film noir piece from Kubrick.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    Etonnant et fascinant second long métrage de Stanley Kubrick, qui assura entièrement la partie technique de l'oeuvre, pour un résultat somme toute époustouflant, tant pour l'exceptionnelle maîtrise de la caméra, que pour une solide direction des principaux acteurs, en particulier Ruth Sobotka, qui fut dans le privé, la première épouse du réalisateur (1954-1957)... www.cinefiches.com

  4. MistaRichard's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    Absolutely gorgeous photography and a story right up Kubrick's alley. Not as strong as his later films, of course, but still a pretty worthwhile watch.

  6. Log Lady's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    Not the best Kubrick, but when examined purely as a film noir, there's no doubt this is way above the most mundane noirs out there. Sure, the story is kind of a bore and the characters are flat, but as a whole definitely worthy of 3.5 stars.

  7. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    Even at such an early age, with his first “real” movie (he disowned “Fear and Desire,” and for good reason honestly), Kubrick proves he really knows how to shoot something. Having a background as a photographer payed off pretty well for him.

  9. Alexandru Acsinte's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    Featuring some interestingly shot and lit scenes, Kubrick's second feature had a bigger impact on me than his first movie (without counting, of course, his documentaries). It's still a product of its time and it shows in its lengthy shots, extremely passionate kisses and basic character arcs (if they could be called that). There are also instances of telling instead of showing, but that could be due to the budget.

  15. Dalibor's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    With a nonexistent budget, as well as directors inexperience at the time, it was probably hard to provoke more charismatic actors, developed characters and less of a cliche story. But as composing the mix into a believable (and quite picturesque at it) whole goes, it is a deserved directing degree.

  16. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    A good film by a good photographer.

  17. Gerry Miriello's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    One magnificent shot after another.

  18. ugur's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

  19. Dombl's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    A criminal movie in the tradition of the film noir, but in the end it lacks the darkness and bitterness of the top-film-noirs. Extraordinary are the neorealist captures of the New York streets and also the final chase over the roof-tops. The use of mirrors are also great with which Kubrick connects Davy and Gloria. A solid film by Kubrick.

  20. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    Un cine negro modesto muy enchapado al prototipo estadounidense. El hombre frustrado (no necesariamente un detective) que se enrola con una femme fatale, los problemas no tardan en llegar. Una muerte, el antihéroe implicado...lo que sigue es lo que menos se espero, especialmente un final. ¿Un happy ending en un cine negro? Definitivamente no va.

  21. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Killer's Kiss

    Stanley Kubrick's second feature film is an effective and well crafted noir with great attention to detail. No great surprises with the plot but a well told solid story with some fantastic cinematography.
