Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

The dirty, harsh, street-level big heist epic that established Kubrick and presented its genre with a new and vivid existentialist aura, as an ex-con engineers the rip-off of a racetrack with disastrous results. Displays characteristic nonsentimental sharp-edged Kubrick vision. Based on the novel "Clean Break" by Lionel White.
