Night Owl

The Asphalt Jungle

Viewed: 4 November 2010
Directed by: John Huston
Listed in: Movies, Netflix

A proto-crime thriller of a jewelry heist in a nondescript, dark, immoral mid-western city. Being one of the first thrillers to focus on the criminals and an anti-hero, it influenced a lot of the films that followed. As a result, I was somewhat unimpressed. Being more familiar with what came in it's wake, sometimes it's hard to see the creativity of the original.
