Well I got to "Wages of Fear" (French with subtitles, 1953). Meh. Yes it got good in the second half of the film, but the problem was with the first half of the film which had character development at a prodigiously glacial pace. Easily could have chopped 30 mins off this, and it would have been the better for it. See spoiler comment at the end of this. If I could rate it by halves, it would be 2/10 for the first half, and 9/10 for the second, so I suppose that leaves it rounded up to 6/10. Disappointing given the reviews I'd read. I would have loved to have talked with the director and writer to find out why they did the first half of the film the way they did -and what value they thought it brought to it. Btw, anyone have any recommendations for a film noir (don't mind subtitles) from around the mid 20th century? spoiler: I was disappointed with the way the fate of the second truck was dealt with, it just seemed... well.... disjointed. A seemingly half hearted attempt at developing the characters and then whoosh!
