I Walk Alone

6 months, 1 week ago at Apr 18 22:38
Film noir is dependent upon a palpable sense of atmosphere, of a world going to rot, covered in grim and thick with smoke. There’s a sense of erotic energy and danger, often intertwined, and everyone seems morally pliable, if not bankrupt or seeking salvation. What separates the best from the merely competent is how these various pieces are deployed and the heightened dialog enveloping them.  ... read more

(OK) Great cast and director, the coolest trio Douglas/Lancaster/Lizabeth and even Corey is moving, and I spotted a small handsome character Mickey Knox; but the scritp is too self conscious, Scott and Lancaster have too many lines, the sequencue of the books explanation and the entire last part are a bit foolish (the clise of the frontpage with Lancaster's phot is too much)...

The dynamite pairing of Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas—in the first of seven films they made together—lights up this striking film noir. Just out of prison, ex-bootlegger Frankie Madison (Lancaster) tracks down his former partner Dink Turner (Douglas) for whom he took the rap fourteen years earlier. When Dink makes it clear that he has no intention of sharing the profits of the swank nightclub he now operates, Frankie takes matters into his own hands. Director Byron Haskin lends a moody, hard-boiled poetry to this crackling tale of double crosses, revenge, and redemption.

I Walk Alone

“Film noir is dependent upon a palpable sense of atmosphere, of a world going to rot, covered in grim and thick with smoke. There’s a sense of erotic energy and danger, often intertwined, and everyone seems morally pliable, if not bankrupt or seeking salvation. What separates the best from the merely competent is how these various pieces are deployed and the heightened dialog enveloping them.   I Walk Alone has a rudimentary plot, one that occasionally gets bogged down with incident that feels improbable, and conventional payoff. Byron Haskin smartly populates the film with a stellar ensemble of actors, future legends on the cusp of superstardom or genre-defining actors doing their thing, but it is obvious that he’s spent time away and only recently comeback as a director. There’s ” read more
