(ag) wrote: This critically panned film is an underrated gem. Pacino treats us with another intriguing, convincing character exploration in this bittersweet comedy. Although there are oddly staged scenes and some awkward dialogue, this movie is very entertaining and, at times, quite moving. Al Pacino never fails to disappoint, and his nuanced portrayal of this unique character is fascinating to watch.

(jp) wrote: A criminally underrated little gem of a film noir from director Fritz Lang, starring the redoubtable Ray Milland as Stephen Neale. Neale is discharged from an asylum and decides to head for London as after two years shut away, "a sea of faces will be quite a tonic". Whilst waiting for his train, he passes the time by looking around a village fete where the little old ladies aren't quite what they seem, guessing the correct weight of a cake which, unbeknownst to him, contains a top secret microfilm! Neale soon finds himself pursued by spies in a wartime Britain which would test the mental equilibrium of the sanest person. Milland is astonishing in this film - he gives a beautifully-nuanced performance, subtly capturing Neale's mental fragilities - here is a man who has been cast adrift in a world he barely recognises. Who can he trust? It almost matches his Oscar-winning turn in "The Lost Weekend" the following year. Lang sets a fast and frenetic pace which is maintained throughout as he positively zips from one splendidly-staged scene to the next. The scene where the blind man gets into Neale's train carriage is an absolute cracker - one of my favourite scenes in any film. The depiction of London during the Blitz is atmospheric and very convincing, and when one considers it was all put together on a Hollywood back-lot, it is nothing short of a triumph.

His character is working in an embassy as second in command when the local rebels try to take control of the embassy. Out numbered and out gunned, it is a very solid story and extremely well directed movie. I specially noticed and liked the many "hand-held" camera shots putting you squarely in the middle of things. This is a good Saturday afternoon movie. See it.
