The Killing

Directed by Stanley Kubrick
United States, 1956
Thriller, Crime, Film noir


A gang of greedy petty criminals plan a race track robbery so they can live a life without monetary worries. When the plan foils disaster ensues. A taut and twisted noir aided by a radical time-shuffling narrative and razor-sharp dialogue from pulp novelist Jim Thompson.
