Humphrey Bogart gives one of his best performances as a volatile screenwriter and suspected murderer in this otherwise bleak and somber film noir.

Although it starts out like a murder mystery whodunit, this creative noir quickly becomes a slow-burn investigation of the simmering relationship between its two leads. Humphrey Bogart does an excellent job of crafting a nuanced character whose frustration at his own failures in life gradually grows into a maddening rage. The film moves is strongest when it lets Bogart command the scenery and the explosive ending is one of the actor's best scenes.

"in A Lonely Place" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo - wrote on 05/05/2012

A Hollywood screenwriter embarks on a relationship with actress Gloria Grahame with the shadow of a murder rap hanging over his head. Bogart is in full intense and paranoid mode for this one rather than the usual in control tough guy we've become accustomed to, and Gloria Grahame's part was actually written specifically for Lauren Bacall and I couldn't help thinking how much better she would have been. I personally was hoping for another Bogie film noir and as the murder case seemed to recede into the distance (it is even solved off screen) so did my interest. I wanted tough crime drama and got romantic melodrama. Not only that, but in a story that was done so much better by Hitchcock in both Suspicion and Rebecca. Well written and acted, but I'll stick with Hitch.
