A gripping film about murder and deceit on the US/Mexico border.
is a great film, nearly up there with Citizen Kane
in terms of Welles' direction and acting. I've no idea how he didn't win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar and the opening tracking shot which runs at something like seven minutes without a cut is just sublime.
It's yet another of those films that I should watch more often than I do.
