The Ladykillers is a macabre slow-burn with quirky performances of even quirkier characters.

This comedy thriller is the best film to come from Ealing Studios for some time, and the combined talents of William Rose (writer) and Alexander Mackendrick (director) have produced a witty and original diversion.
The architecture of the film - and buildings and angles are an integral part of why it works so well - rests upon the twin pillars of Katie Johnson and Alec Guinness.
One of the great Ealing comedies of the 1950s.
Nothing else like it.
As directed in a kind of damp, gray color palette by Alexander Mackendrick the film is one of the richest and most carefully-paced of the Ealing comedies.
Director Alexander Mackendrick ... reached a masterful apex of sorts with this wickedly hilarious movie's precise balance of situational comedy and stark murderous callousness.
worthy to see heavily maked-up Guinnes and pre-panther Sellers.
Most of the slapstick set pieces warrant a polite smile rather than a hearty guffaw.
Ridiculously funny dark comedy. Guinness is having way too much fun.
O delicioso humor negro é ainda mais ressaltado pelas ótimas performances de todo o elenco - em especial, de Guinness e Johnson.
The best of the Ealing comedies.
Not as entertaining as the remake I felt, but was good to be able to compare the two, especially with the location differences as well.
A hilarious story, I loved it.
I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the person who recommended it to me, but the little old lady is worth the price of admission.
UPDATE: Saw this again today, and was a little more impressed. Although I still think it starts off rather slow, it has a deliciously twisted ending. I remember that Kind Hearts and Coronets had a similar arc. I'm wondering if that's the style of older Brit comedies in general. Maybe I shouldn't be in such a hurry to turn them off.
Absolutely terrific. Funny and charming. I love this movie.
