In all its fury and violence…like no other pictures since SCARFACE and LITTLE CAESAR.
1956’s The Killing was one of Stanley Kubrick’s early films. This expertly crafted noir helped establish Kubrick as a filmmaker of uncommon vision and control. In the film, a career criminal (Sterling Hayden) recruits a team for one last job before he leaves his life of crime and marries his fiancee. But when one of his men tells his wife about the scheme, she hatches a plot of her own.
