Eventough the story was pretty straight-forward, it was nonetheless very riveting and entertaining. Widmark was the film's corner-stone and his charismatic and strong presence is what made the movie for me. What a cool cat this guy is... I really need to see more of his work.

He wrote it, cast it and directed it. It's full of human expressions and details that other directors don't always bother to show.
