a drawn-out hour of investigation that looks like a schoolyard game of C.S.I.
| Original Score: 3/5
It would have been a much better film if it weren't for the censor: there is absolutely no question about that.
| Original Score: C+
Sutil como um touro numa loja de porcelana, soa implausível em sua trama e tolo na maneira com que prega o óbvio. Com isso, suas válidas intenções morais se tornam apenas infantis.
| Original Score: 1/5
Crossfire is an unusually good and honest movie and may -- I hope, will - prove a very useful one.
It has a very strong and powerful message against anti-Semitism.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
| Original Score: 5/5
An intriguing combination of a common noir theme with the liberal-minded message picture.
A thematically articulate film.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Dealing with racial bigotry, this tense thriller combines a message drama with the stylistics of film noir, resulting in one of the best films of the 1940s, with top notch work from Robert Mitchum and Robert Ryan.
| Original Score: 4/5
While the film remains a respectable thriller, only Ryan's crafty, quietly deranged performance lifts it out of the ordinary.
Brave and impressive stuff.
This ultra-low-budget thriller did what all great B movies do: it broached a subject that 'respectable' movies wouldn't touch.
Producer Dore Schary, in association with Adrian Scott, has pulled no punches.
| Original Score: 4/4
