Criss Cross ★★★★

Burt Lancaster goes full dumb for Yvonne De Carlo in this dark-as-night and bitter-as-poison film noir... and you really can’t blame the guy. The ending is a bit of a shocker, with Dan Duryea slipping off into the night like that. I’m kind of surprised Siodmak got away with it, because it only abides by the Hays Code by pure assumption.
