Joseph Losey ABD, 1951
Losey saw humanity for what it was: vile, afraid, painful, complicated. But he also saw that it was worth standing up for. M set the stage for a career spent probing the strangest, bleakest depths of the human spirit. And it’s time we brought it out from the shadows.

[Wayne’s] subtlety works and he comes off not only incredibly creepy and heavy breathing sexual but an effective cipher and just terrifying (he’s different than Lorre) who allows Losey’s spectacular supporting cast — Martin Gabel, Luther Adler, Norman Lloyd, Raymond Burr and Jim Backus — to work off and perhaps even through him by going larger (Luther Adler is especially strong here).

Less geometric trap than floating crap game, filtered through pale sunlight rather than engulfing shadows, this is as much a document about Los Angeles in the McCarthy years as Lang’s film was a snapshot of Weimar Berlin. It builds to a remarkable search of the Bradbury Building’s echoing, zigzagging innards, with Wayne dragged from a room full of disembodied mannequins to an impromptu tribunal in a cavernous garage.

Though sticking closely to the plot of the original, Losey turns the story into pungent Americana through his attention to alluringly grubby Los Angeles locations. Ernest Laszlo’s probing cinematography makes the mottled sidewalks and grim façades eloquent, and Losey’s urgent tracking and crane shots convey the paranoid pairing of menace and surveillance.
