Mate's direction of the first portion of the story lingers too long over it, spreading the expectancy very thin, but when he does launch his suspense-building it comes over with a solid wallop.
Incidental pleasures include a bevy of suspiciously beautiful women... the wide lapels and fedoras favored by the heavies, and the ''in'' talk of the period, featuring words like ''hip,'' ''jive'' and ''kicks.''
Maté shoots fast and always to the point as he drives his protagonist through endless doorways and rooms which are like trapdoors and boxes in an accelerating nightmare.
...an underwhelming thriller that could and should have fared so much better.
[VIDEO ESSAY] A high-concept movie before there was such a thing, "D.O.A." foreshadowed the poisoning of (possibly) Yasser Arafat and (definitely) Alexander Litvinenko - via polonium-210 - by a half-century.
Sweltering Borgesian fantasy
Apesar de determinados elementos que não envelheceram bem (como as referências na trilha às paqueras do herói), tem uma premissa fascinante que consegue gerar boa dose de suspense.
Rudolph Maté's seminal thriller rapidly decomposes into a campy, confusing bore.
It stands as one of the finest of the post-war B thrillers.
Features a murder victim who acts as a detective to solve his own murder.
A clever ruse for suspense.
Crafty, potent little noir.
1950, when this noir was made, was a long time ago (nearly 70 years as of this writing). The wolf whistles played whenever a pretty woman's onscreen (which I first suspected were included after the fact of the filming by some internet prankster), Neville Brand's over-the-top "I'm a craaa-zzzzy psycho" routine, much here seems dated now, but the suspense of watching a dead man search for his killer still packs a wallop. And makes for a good movie experience.
"I want to report a murder." "Who was murdered?" "I was." One of the great "grabber" openings in movie history doesn't disappoint, leading to a tense and fatalistic noir about a poisoned accountant searching for his own killer.
Frank Bigelow is an accountant living on borrowed time. Someone has slipped luminous toxin into his bourbon and now he has just a few days to solve his own murder. D.O.A. is over-acted, over-scripted and under-appreciated. An absolute delight!
An extremely exciting, suspenseful movie, a really good movie.
