    A lot of New York architecture, probably gone now. Great black and white contrast with soft focus early and tight focus as the movie ages. Ultimate comparison in a black & white movie is that a : a white hates a black, they both die and can't be identified in death.

    Fast moving crime thriller with Harry Belafonte giving a very deep and excellent performance. The entire cast is excellent - Shelley Winters is very convincing, Robert Ryan gives a very intense performance, Ed Begley and Gloria Grahame are very memorable. Excellent score and music, the atmosphere is tense and it is very well edited. Great story, believably told with well developed characters and good photography.

  • A masterwork of Robert Wise

    Oftenly sited as the last film noir picture along with "Touch of Evil." Not only that, "Odds Against Tomorrow" is arguably one of the finest film noir pictures of all time. It also should have recognized as one of the best films of director, Robert Wise. Wise, always was innovative making his films, and made them quite memorable. This ingenuity was quite obvious in "Odds Against Tomorrow." Beautiful B&W pictorial quality is still astonishing, sharp cutting is stunning, use of John Lewis' jazz score is almost artistic, and characters' mood is perfectly suited to lead us into grim, nihilistic, yet a very poetic noir environment. Players were perfectly chosen too. Robert Ryan, Harry Belafonte, Ed Begley, Shelley Winters, and Gloria Grahame are all wonderful. Espesially, Ryan proves himself again as an effecive noir anti-hero. He succeeded to inject a real man out of himself who feels fear, hate, loneliness, and possibly a little hope.All together, "Odds Against Tomorrow" should be remembered as one of the most artistic contribution for the film noir genre, as well as the masterwork of great director, Robert Wise.
