Irving Lerner संयुक्त राज्य अमरीका, 1958

Jason's rating of the film Murder by Contract

A fascinating and coolly methodical crime picture with absolutely brilliant cinematography from the great Lucien Ballard, MURDER BY CONTRACT is something like a tightly controlled tangent. We might be compelled to think of Hitchcock's ROPE, but here the antisocial transvaluation of values is undermined in a more rueful (deeply ironic) way: go ahead and buy your own line of bullshit, Buster, it's your funeral.
