Pickup On South Street is one of the most brilliant movies ever made.
An example of the directing: When Candy (Jean Peters) starts going
through her purse and notices her wallet is missing, an alarm goes off
in the background in the building she's in -- as if it's an alarm going
off in her head. It's not cartoon-like -- it's subtly woven into the
background in a way that strikes you on a subconscious level until
you've seen the film a few times and it just "clicks" that there's an
alarm bell going off when she starts frantically going through her bag.
Richard Widmark is way on top of his game as a smart-alec -- he's
really great -- but the highlight performance of the film was the first
scene for "Moe," the street peddler/informer, played by Thelma Ritter.
Later, in her apartment, you are not seeing a movie -- you're seeing a
real person. I've never seen anyone "act" so real I felt like I was
looking into a real room until Ritter's performance -- right down to
the way her hair stuck out a bit when she removed her hat.
About a million other things just *worked,* from the way Lightning
Louie picks up money with his chopsticks to the way Candy's jewelry
clicks when she flicks Moe's hand away from her brooch, to the way Moe
gets the dollars and change from the police captain across the FBI
guy's chest -- and even the way the captain opens his filing cabinet,
like he's been doing it in that way in that room for many years.
"Pickup On South Street" is detailed moves (directing) with consummate
performances (acting) and superb now-nostalgic visuals of the day, such
as the panel truck, the boards leading to the shack out on the water,
the dumbwaiter, -- and the unforgettable place Skip stashes his pocket
pickings. Wonderful stuff.
"Pickup On South Street" is also one of the few movies where, even
though the characters aren't perfect, you do care about them -- perhaps
because they have been somewhat branded by their pasts in ways that are
hard to escape: Skip as a "three-time loser" and Candy as a youngish
woman who has "knocked around" a lot. When these people behave a little
more badly than you'd expect, it's in sort of novel ways that make it
seem you're looking in at people you'd never otherwise imagine -- and
yet you know that they are possible because the actors make them so
