Lean and mean, Raw Deal is a classic noir film and is as hard-boiled as they come. Anthony Mann is an under-appreciated filmmaker and the film, as many others have said, is beautifully shot by John Alton. True noir cinema here.
Overrated noir. Mann's skills are present, but the protagonist feels like the least interesting character in the picture, so you never really get in the mood. Also, the over-expressiveness of some shots edited with the complex open shots that combine many characters and visual symbolic elements make the movie increasingly ambiguous so that in the end it doesn't really say very much about anything. Only a curiosity.
