A great classic

Since this movie has a really impressive reputation, I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, even though some old classics sometimes don’t really live up to their reputation, this one certainly didn’t disappoint me. Indeed, even though the damned thing is almost 70 years old, it has aged very well and it is considered as one of the greasted class... read more

"2.7. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Jännitteenluontiosaston viralliselta valvojalta vaan vittu terveisiä. Ihmisen perimmäisestä ahneudesta myös asiaa. Nimeämätön eteläamerikkalainen valtio, johon syistä taikka toisista on pääytynyt erimaalaisia vetelehtijöitä haaveilemaan töistä tarjoaa universaalin ajatushautomon teemallensa. Isot amerikkalaiskihot pakoilevat länsimaista työetikkaa ja lakejakin, mutta rahanhimo pilaa yhtälailla myös tavallisen duunarin."
