Brute Force

Brute Force ★★★★

Remarkable atmosphere and attention to detail, as to be expected from director Jules Dassin. Something as simple as the passing light through a window becomes not only a show of depth, but a persistent reminder of an overseeing oppression. Heavy resemblance to the great prison-break films to come: Bresson's A Man Escaped, Becker's Le Trou, Darabont's The Shawshank Redemption; films that feel deeply trapped within their setting and the brutality of its forsaken.
