Here’s a film with a dream-like look that’s really more like machinery greasing for Scarlet Street.

This bait-and-switch ending also leaves the film, stylistically noir in all the right places even if it never wears these tropes too comfortably, on a jokey final note. ... read more

(OK) Maybe the great intuition of Lang here is playing all the argument to a dream/nightmare; deceiving some expectations...well, Bennett relfected in the window is a dream....

"Langia vittumaisimmillaan. En ole ikinä ollut Eddie G:n suurinkaan fani, mutta Dong Wang hoitaa homman kotiin. Täysin turhaa myös todeta, että Langin kuvat eivät pettäneet tälläkään kertaa."

"In both his German and American productions, Lang’s characters wrestle with impulses that are at odds with prevailing social standards. Similarly, Lang, an architect of film noir, had to learn how to tame his massive and politically dangerous visions for America, which isn’t as uncomfortable with anti-fascist sentiments as it should be. Lang understands the suppression that’s casual in American life, even for the privileged men who’ve benefitted most from the American contract, such as P"
