Brute Force-Fuerza Bruta


Yesterday I watched again "Brute Force" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039224/)
It is an absolute gem!...Powerful and expressionistic. It is a re-telling of the story of the slave Spartacus and has overtones of Nazi concentration camp brutality. Sadistic Captain Munsey, the chief warden, listens to Wagner's "Die Nibelungen" as he tortures a prisoner in his office.
The film was directed by Jules Dassin (Rififi, The Naked City, Etc.) the music was by Miklos Rosza and it was photographed by the great William Daniels. Don't miss it if you can!!!
