07.21.06Netflix The movie that spawned a whole subgenre of suspense thrillers... I typically find these movies pretty uncomfortable to watch... the whole thing is about bullies coming into people's home and waving a gun around, verbally and physically abusing innocent people and turning them into savages... Wyler is a bit too classy to include the extended rape sequences or impressive torrents of racial epithets that make other films of this genre notable, but a grizzly Bogart does enough with his spittle voice and sunken eyes. Not a bad movie...
