Estamos ante un buen ejemplo de cine negro. Resumiendo el argumento diremos que Skip McCoy (Richarc Widmark) es un carterista que en una de sus actuaciones rutinarias en el metro topa con Candy (Jean Peters), a la que roga la cartera del bolso.

A good movie

To be honest, I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was on the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be a really solid film noir, that's for sure. In fact, the opening scene in the subway was just amazing and probably one of the best scenes I have seen in this genre. I liked as well the fact that there w... read more

Slant’s 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time (100 movies items)

"The world of Pickup on South Street is familiar to admirers of Samuel Fuller’s other films, abounding in a lurid cavalcade of unforgettable oddballs who collectively show America to be a place of cracked schemers and dreamers working for their own interests. Like many crime-film directors, Fuller regards his crooks fondly as the people who’re willing to see America for what it is and play by the real rules accordingly, while the cops are hypocrites who hide their prudish self-righteousness b"
