dir. Sidney Lumet (1964)

Style chameleon, director Sidney Lumet, conducts a lesson in psychological filmmaking in this artful study of a man dealing with his traumatic past. Legendary producer and composer Quincy Jones scores the fragmented, black and white visuals. With a moving central performance by the masterful Rod Steiger, the film also features Morgan Freeman in his first – uncredited – screen role.
