  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Try and Get Me!

    Nasty and mean-spirited in the best way. Did you ever have one of those days, and you didn't think things could get any worse, but then they do, and then you wind up getting lynched by an entire town, crazed with revenge? It's like that. I'm telling you, some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed!

  2. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Try and Get Me!

    A gripping noir with a moral twist that suprisingly works very well thanks to a great script and convincing performances from the talented cast.

  3. Lumière's rating of the film Try and Get Me!

    Damn, one of the darkest noirs ever! Even darker than Fritz Lang's Fury, its closest companion as it was based on the same incident. There isn't a single facet of postwar American society the film doesn't condemn. The underlying desperation, loneliness and spiritual and financial despair and thoroughly brought out in the open. And the mob mentality depicted in the final scenes is truly harrowing.

  4. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film Try and Get Me!

    Starts with a belly-punch, Fuller-like, over and above reason. Slowly crawls into a sociological study firmly grounded in logic, just what the 'message' says. Favourite character: the lonely shy manicurist looking for love in all the wrong places.

  5. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Try and Get Me!

    Wow. One of the darkest of the films noir. Like ACE IN THE HOLE and KISS ME DEADLY, this movie pretty much condemns the whole of American society: desperation, loneliness, opportunism, criminality, mob mentality, you name it, it's rot from top to bottom. In 1950! That this flick isn't better known, even among noir "connoisseurs," is hard to believe. Blistering.

  6. Christofer Pierson's rating of the film Try and Get Me!

    Lloyd Bridges should be mentioned among the cast. Strong performance from beginning to end.

  7. Yuki Aditya's rating of the film Try and Get Me!

    a bit preachy near the end, but hell its social message is as strong and important now as it was back then...*tearsrollingdown*
