I love this film. It's a joy to watch, and repeated viewings always reveal something new. Very adult for its time compared with Hollywood. A good double billing with "Bob le Flambeur".

raise a glass of ouzo to the great Jules Dassin, maker of Rififi, Naked City, Night and the City, Thieves Highway, Brute Force, and my personal fave, Topkapi, recently celebrating his 94th birthday and just about the last of his kind still among us.

I think I'm the only person who doesn't like Rififi. It seems to get the atmosphere wrong - I know it's authentically contemporaneous.
