The Third Man [1949] ★★★★

 “In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.  In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock”.

Terrific movie about a man (cottens) who arrives in Vienna to work with his friend Harry Lime, only to learn that he died in a freak accident.  “The Third Man” is considered by many as the best british film noir ever made; it’s certainly one of the most entertaining, with an incredibly amazing Orson Welles.

Rating: 4/4

  1. I think this film is perfection. Absolutely flawless. A Must-see! Probably my favourite Film Noir and a huge source of inspiration.
