Force of Evil is a masterpiece, usually lumped in with films noir of the period, but unique.
August 8, 2006
For all its unpleasant nature, it must be said that this film is a dynamic crime-and-punishment drama, brilliantly and broadly realized.

At its best, Force achieves a style at once brutal and poetic, documentarian and noir.

June 7, 2003
A gripping thriller with a terrific performance by Garfield. It seems only the good peformers and directors got blacklisted (in this case Garfield and Polonsky).

January 1, 2000
A poetic, terse, beautifully exact, and highly personal re-creation of the American underworld, with an unpunctuated Joycean screenplay by Polonsky that is perhaps unique in the American cinema.

A thinly-veiled outright damnation of capitalism and its merger-heavy practices. Heavy-handed but quite intriguing and poetic.
