Underneath The Killing's clockwork violence is a pungent layer of irony, something Kubrick would further explore many times later in his career.

Strongly recommended for any film noir fan -- it's full of double-crosses and surprises, loaded with honest crooks, weak men, one wicked woman and some great two-fisted dialogue.

Stanley Kubrick's masterful manipulation of chronology brings an excruciating sense of doom to The Killing, a classical noir about a carefully threaded heist unraveled by the scheming of a fiendish femme.

One of the undisputed high-water marks of the American crime film whose reverberations can still be felt in a number of ways.

May be the greatest of American heist films because it bursts the genre to the point of existentialism.

Arguably Stanley Kubrick's most perfectly conceived and executed film.
February 4, 2006
Stanley Kubrick's third film established him as a full-fledged filmmaker and a potential master.

[The film] at first tends to be somewhat confusing, soon settles into a tense and suspenseful vein which carries through to an unexpected and ironic windup.

Stellar Kubrick film noir.

October 27, 2011
A brisk, satisfying film noir that features all the details of a racetrack heist gone wrong - even if the timeline is all shuffled out of order. It's thick with atmosphere and razor-sharp dialogue.

Characteristically Kubrick in both its mechanistic coldness and its vision of human endeavour undone by greed and deceit, this noir-ish heist movie is nevertheless far more satisfying than most of his later work.

Simply put, this is one of the best crime films ever made.

Com uma estrutura narrativa avançada para sua época, este longa é mais uma prova (desnecessária, claro) de que Kubrick sempre foi um Mestre em sua arte.

1956 and it's already Kubrick, being Kubrick.
