Desperate

Film, Thrillers
Mann's B thrillers are as tough and harshly stylised as they come. Here Steve Brodie and wife flee both the mob fingering him for murder and the law. Burr is a superb gangleader, and one scene - a beating-up in a dark basement lit by a single swinging light - is essence of noir.
