5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t never once shies from the cut-throat harshness of the industry, and with its punchy script is both a precursor to British new wave cinema and a template for scamming svengalis."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Beneath its deceptively kitschy surface, Expresso Bongo is a potently clever film whose savvy critique of the corruptive values of show biz are reminiscent of that other hardboiled classic Sweet Smell of Success.
With a screenplay by Wolf Mankowitz and syncopated style to burn, director Val Guest's Expresso Bongo sizzles with authenticity, and is a witty, smart, entertaining exploration of one facet of the Brit Beat phenomenon.
