VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK:
The Killers, 1946 dir. Robert Siodmak
My dark mood prompts me to recommend one of the best film noirs ever
made in my humble opinion. Burt Lancaster plays an ex-prizefighter on
the lam in a small town. Ol' Burt's doomed to get his as his sordid
past is revealed. Based on a classic short story by Ernest
Hemmingway. the Criterion Collection gives this film the deluxe
treatment it deserves.
