Can you think of a greater opening scene in any movie?
As an art enthusiast, my eye always catches the Jacques Mahe de la Villegle / Mimmo Rotella like wall seen as the camera tracks the bomb moving toward to car.
One of the greatest movies ever.
I'm struck by how Welles uses the camera and light and darkness in this movie. It reminds me a lot of the Third Man. I'd like to see this and the Third Man on a big screen sometime.
I don't know if you meant this, but it's directed by Carol Reed.
The Third Man, you mean. Yeah, the obvious connection is that Welles acts in both, but the camera work in the two reminds me of the other.
