All these B movie poets were under contract to RKO in the winter of 1946, and produced the best movie of everyone involved -- once seen, never forgotten. Full Review

Fairly well played, and very well photographed (by Nicholas Musuraca), the action develops a routine kind of pseudo-tension. Full Review
TIME Magazine

Rating: 4/4 -- 'Maybe we thought the world would end,' Mitchum muses, during a short-lived spell of happiness in Mexico. 'Maybe we thought it was a dream.' A dream? In his trench coat and fedora, he's clearly not a man destined to die quietly in his bed. Full Review

Direction by Jacques Tourneur pays close attention to mood development, achieving realistic flavor that is further emphasized by real life settings and topnotch lensing by Nicholas Musuraca. Full Review

Rating: 9/10 -- Essential viewing for the noir fan and the kind of movie that could make a neutral third party into a noir fan in the first place. Full Review

In a genre full of desperate characters scrambling and plotting to grab their slice of the American dream, Jacques Tourneur's Out of the Past (1947) is a hard-boiled tale of betrayal with an unusually haunting quality. Full Review
