"[T]he onetime art-house staple wowed viewers who were unacquainted with European films of the recent past with its flashy editing techniques."
THE PAWNBROKER, directed by Sidney Lumet, stars Rod Steiger in this grim, dark tale of a Holocaust survivor who runs a pawnshop in Harlem. The film traces his deterioration as modern times force old memories to painfully flood back to him.
