It shows Montgomery still taking chances, retaining some seriously robust cinematic flair, courtesy director of photography Russell Metty. There are lots of long, fluid takes and a very heavy atmosphere throughout.
The film is both tough and touching, with crackling dialogue (scripted by the great Ben Hecht and Charles Lederer) and stylized scenes...
The plot isn't the attraction here; instead, it's the intriguing relationships between the characters, the black-and-white camerawork by the great Russell Metty (Touch of Evil, Spartacus), and the scintillating performances by all concerned.
An under-seen but highly-recommended film.
If a director's job is to come up with creative ways to convey who characters are and the deeper meaning of their circumstances, Montgomery earns a gold star.
Skillfully crafted crime-noir, well directed by Robert Montogmery and well acted by the entire cast, especially Thomas Gomez in an Oscar-nominated performance.
Stylishly presented complex psychological melodrama.
the actor robert montgomery both directs and stars in this noir set in the new mexican desert. haunting images, mysterious characters, hard-boiled dialogue, yet all is not as cynical as it first seems. a powerful film with delicious atmosphere
