I've read recent reviews of this film that condemn it for being
"outdated" or not "relevant". Um, hello? This movie is is fifty-seven
years old! As such, we are treated to typical 1940s Hollywood
stereotypes and acting methods, not to mention references to the
recently completed war. Yet, even within the pitfalls of the studio
system, this film shines as a great example of film noir.
Director Jules Dassin is brilliant with light, and sets the example for
the French "new wave" of cinema. Lighting Burt Lancaster from the side,
or from underneath, makes him and the other actors look almost surreal.
Most of the dialogue is "clipped" and preposterous, but films from this
era often suffer from this same problem. Yet "Brute Force" retains its
original power simply by virtue of the dynamite performances, the
stirring score, and the gritty techniques of Dassin.
I had to smile during the scene where Hume Cronyn's character turns up
the Wagner on his hi-fi so the guards outside his door won't hear the
inmate he's about to beat scream. This was mimicked during David
Lynch's ground-breaking TV series "Twin Peaks" when a character turned
up his radio before he beat his wife. Of course beating people isn't
funny, but seeing obvious references in cinema is always a kick.
I highly recommend "Brute Force" to anyone who appreciates the art of
film, great directing, and fine performances.
