  3. T Mills's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    I found this to be an excellent Noir, hurt only by the silly action in its climax. The film's dialog is great, full of subtext and innuendo. Howard is a great lead. The best part of the film is the section where the woman asks him to kill her husband. That could be a film all by itself.

  4. jeromey's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    What fun! An entertaining hard boiled script embedded in a beautifully shot noir film telling an improbable but likeable story.

  5. Matt Reddick's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    the fight scene at the end nearly ruined it - he softly threw the gun and knocked the toughest guy out!... but I'll let it pass

  6. Nick Potter's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    A rarely heard of British film noir that easily deserves to be in the discussion of the best, Alberto Cavalcanti's They Made Me A Fugitive is a terrifically paced dark thriller.

  7. caitlin.f's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    noir is not my favorite style but this had some good twists.

  8. David R Williams's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    All the classic film noir tropes with various British accents. Droll performances. Stunning black and white photography. Snappy dialogue with a deep thick vein of black humor running throughout - "Shut your trap, there's a draft".

  9. pmonaghan3's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    Corn-ball imitation of Hollywood noir cornball. Formulaic, as film noir needn't have been but almost always was. Low-grade acting. Implausible plot development – stumbling on a disgruntled wife wiling to kill her drunk husband... what a reach. Terrible acting and implausible depictions by actors who at least seem way, way older than supposed to be.

  10. 5000yearoldbogmummy//Rhett's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    By turns dreamy and nightmarish, this brilliant British noir develops a tit-for-tat hunt for salvation from and satisfaction of vengeance. This occupies an imaginative territory of a cold, brutalized post-war world.

  11. Wee Hunk's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    They didn't make you a fugitive. Can we take some personal responsibility here? Didn't your parents tell you not to hang with criminals? Haven't you seen any movies? These things always go wrong. Be an adult and stop blaming other people for your weaknesses. And you know what they say about revenge? "Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord". Do you really feel better now? Don't you feel a little empty? Bad criminal!

  12. wayne roylance's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    there aren't a lot of very good british noir films. this one is better than most. a good choice if "you want jam on it."

  13. Allison Rung's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    Reminds me of the 39 Steps for its good-guy fugitive rambling through the countryside, and of Notorious for its ritual re-defeat of evil Nazis ("Narcy"...). Aside from Trevor Howard, I thought there was a strong performance by Celia Johnson, doing a voice I'd never heard from her before.... but turns out CJ has a lookalike called René Ray?

  14. SpacePirate's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    A very good little noir here. The Narcissus character was douchebag-ery personified, and Trevor Howard will always be one of my favorite British actors. A real gem of a film.

  15. Loz Loory's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    I'm familiar with Trevor Howard only through his supporting role in "The Third Man." He makes a dynamite leading man. One theme does link the two movies: friends fall out over moral differences and both end up hunted. The brutal treatment of women is shocking, though the horror is greater as much is implied (the idea of the belt is terrifying). The final rooftop grappling is divine as staged around the RIP sign.

  16. Ben Loory's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    such a mean little movie! seen it many times, but somehow it's always surprising; full of strange little lines and moments, great set-pieces, and twisted behavior. narcy, the villain, is just so perfect-- almost supernaturally evil, but still completely believable. it's a weird mix, not sure how they pulled it off. and i do love that RIP sign!

  18. Daniel S.'s rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    ***1/2. I loved the scene when Trevor Howard meets a woman who accepts to help him on the condition he murders her husband. Very British, isn't it? Now, it's interesting to compare They Made Me a Fugitive with American Film Noir of the same period. While prostitution and drugs are mentioned freely in Alberto Cavalcanti movie, Hollywood had to cope with censorship and delivered most of the time only tasteless films.

  19. Shayan Bazri's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    British noir ,you know about british realism ,well that combined with noir with great directing from the great cavalcanti ,plus wonderful performances(it hast the best howard).A must see noir movie.

  20. msmichel's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    'It is later than you think' Dynamite UK noir from director Cavalcanti adapted by Noel Langley from the novel by Jackson Budd. Fantastic script that keeps the viewer engaged with no small thanks to the atmospheric visuals and the top casting including Trevor Howard, Griffith Jones and a wonderful Sally Gray. A shame Cavalcanti made so few features in Britain and his career never really took off after his emigration.

  21. ArmandS's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    Great, gritty dialogue and characters. Wonderful black and white cinematography, lots of unexpected twists, and the wonderful performances of Trevor Howard and Griffith Jones, among many.

  22. Buddy Love's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    Don't mess with a former RAF pilot! A classic crime drama. Charming villain with very mean streak and some fine use of dark humor. Post war England wouldn't be a preferred holiday destination.

  23. Flying Dutchman's rating of the film They Made Me a Fugitive

    A fascinatingly morbid concoction of savagery and poeticism on the streets of post war London. Contains maybe one of the bleakest scenes I have seen in a British film from this period.
