Recenzii ale criticilor

Brilliantly acted under Walsh’s direction, Bogart and Lupino nimbly oscillate between the jaded Weltschmerz of their previous lives and the hopeful, albeit cautious, enchantment of their new one. Referred to as both a gangster film and a noir, the film’s amorphousness mirrors the very man who made it, both as iconoclastic as they are indefinable.

Best part of this is the grim worldview, studded with ‘cookies full of arsenic’ to quote J.J. Hunsecker: a cute little dog is in fact the kiss of death, while a pure, demure crippled girl turns into a cold-hearted jitterbugger the moment her club foot is fixed. Actual story is a bit mechanical, and Bogie leans hard on his mannerisms (esp. the snarl with lips pulled back), albeit making sure that the glints of goodness in Roy Earle seem existential rather than sentimental.

The John Huston-W.R. Burnett screenplay blueprints an Oakie’s journey West, only Steinbeck’s California has become “the land of milk and honey for the health racket,” resort towns and manicured palm trees surrounded by deserts and frigid mountains; Walsh choreographs it with an implacable forward push and, in one casually dizzying bit of inventiveness, plunks down the camera by the rocky foothills and pans 360° twice to take in the police chase skidding by.
