Day of the Outlaw

Day of the Outlaw ★★★★

that first act? 5 stars
it's a pity that this becomes a hostage movie of sorts because that initial set up is just so totally flawless and captivating. de toth still manages to shape this into something great w some superb craftsmanship and style (the dancing!) but I can't pretend I kinda cared less and less as it goes on... give robert ryan his chance to shine properly!! easily one of the most well written and complex characters of his time in that beginning section alone.
