Saturday Night Cinema: Brute Force


Saturday Night Cinema feature is Brute Force, starring total stud and total man's man Burt Lancaster and brilliant talent Hume Cronyn. "Brute Force" is still one of the most powerful prison film noir movies ever made.  A Universal International film (1947), the cast includes  Charles Bickford, Yvonne De Carlo, Ann Blyth, Ella Raines, Anita Colby, John Hoyt, Howard Duff, Whit Bissell, Art Smith. Director: Jules Dassin.

One of the best prison movies ever made. Jules Dassin's direction is so strong, so precise, so mind-boggling it packs a real wallop. Hume Cronyn gives a subdued but extremely scary portrayal of a sadistic brute. Always in a suave voice, always saying "I want to help you", there's only one way for him: the hard one. Burt Lancaster is equally effective as a tough inmate. But the whole cast cannot be too highly praised. (more here)
