“A virtual piece of film criticism in movie form”
The New Yorker

“A preponderant atmosphere of psychosexual menace”
Slant Magazine

You’ll be pleasantly surprised by Blake Edwards’ hyper-stylish and genuinely disturbing thriller about a master criminal who coerces a young woman (Lee Remick) and her teenage sister (Stefanie Powers) into helping him pull off a complex bank job. With Glenn Ford as the harried FBI man who tries to put a stop to it. This film is a virtual blueprint for David Lynch’s noir inflected work: the music, the angles, the performance styles, and more.
