Summary
  • The killing: "Stanley Kubrick's account of an ambitious racetrack robbery is one of Hollywood's tautest, twistiest noirs. Aided by a radically time-shuffling narrative, razor-sharp dialogue from pulp novelist Jim Thompson, and a phenomenal cast of character actors, including Sterling Hayden, Coleen Gray, Timothy Carey, and Elisha Cook Jr., The Killing is both a jaunty thriller and a cold-blooded punch to the gut. With its precise tracking shots and gratifying sense of irony, it's Kubrick to the core"--Provided by publisher
  • Killer's kiss: "As a man waits at a train station for his girl, he tells us about the recent past and we segue into a long flashback."--The Internet Movie Database
