  • mjgildea's rating of the film Sirocco

    If Casablanca has a skeevy brother with no charm and loser friends, then Sirocco is that brother. For as weak as Sirocco is, the cafe bombing and any scene with Marta Toren picked up some of the slack but the Zero Mostel and Nick Dennis warehouse scene was creepy (as was Mostel's character generally) as hell. If nothing else, Sirocco was further proof that the 50s just weren't Bogart's decade...
