Beautiful but smug

The cinematography is brilliant, and so vivid you almost forget you are watching a black & white movie. It's been well preserved and looks as if it could have been released yesterday. And the locales were so interesting that Vienna seems like another character (whether it was shot there or not).

Wasn't quite enjoying this movie and I was just wondering what made people rate this movie more than 8. I was about it give it just a six star rating but again the last scene, may be just 5 last seconds of the movie made me give one more star.

I love these kind of movies that has such an unpredictable endings. Didn't love the whole movie but the last, of course.

An out of work pulp fiction novelist, Holly Martins, arrives in a post war Vienna divided into sectors by the victorious allies, and where a shortage of supplies has lead to a flourishing black market. He arrives at the invitation of an ex-school friend, Harry Lime, who has offered him a job, only to discover that Lime has recently died in a peculiar traffic accident. From talking to Lime's friends and associates Martins soon notices that some of the stories are inconsistent, and determines to discover what really happened to Harry Lime.

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" One of the best post-WW2 film noir movies that have ever been made where they even reunite the two best actors from the Mercury Theater, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten. The hunt for the mysterious Harry Lime is gripping from the arrival in Vienna till it all ends in a memorable manhunt down in the city's sewer tunnels. The music hits like a bullet in the back of my bones and Alida Valli is gorgeous. A perfect film."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2017 (28 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 44min. First Viewing It does start a bit slowly, but once The Third Man starts moving, it really is a masterclass in filmmaking. It's thrilling, intriguing, surprisingly funny, and incredibly entertaining. A marvel in every department.
