The conman (Andre Morell) was fantastic - he was a completely effective and entirely believable social manipulator, which was such a refreshing view of vintage criminality given that we tend to associate the term social manipulator with more modern, identify-based schemes. It was nice to see this film move beyond the stayed trope of a bad guy pointing a gun. It was much more conniving, and the thief and his methods get right under your skin.
I recommend this to all fans of Cushing or crime thrillers- it won't disappoint.
K. Rating: 4.5/5
