Just saw this Stanley Kubrick film for the first time last night. It's amazing how thrilling this 1950's heist film is.
Kubrick has to be one of the foremost creative geniuses over the past 100 years. The range of films he made: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Spartacus, Lolita, Barry Lyndon, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket and Eyes Wide Shut are awesome.
I definitely recommend this movie, The Killing.
