lobsta’s review published on Letterboxd:
Classic Noir with strong cast with an ending thats completely disappointing, a little surprising compared to what else of Lang's I have seen, maybe it was the only code enforced way to end. It doesnt help that its slightly slower paced than would be expected and lacking the hardboiled dialogue that added another enjoyable element of noir's. Highlight of the film would probably be the forest scene where he implicates himself repeatedly and jokes it off, despite near ridiculous explanations there's something about his confidence that you totally get why they buy his story.
As far as a classic noir from 1944 with Edward G Robinson I'll stick with Double Indemnity
