Occasionally brilliant.

The trouble, as so often with Ritt films, is that the situation remains interesting rather than involving. But at least this detachment means that one has the leisure to savour the textures of Wong Howe's magnificent camerawork.

Realism without much reality, enormous care for the wrong details, historical accuracy and spineless dramaturgy.
