With this lean black-and-white racetrack robbery thriller, Stanley Kubrick found the high style and astringent tone that would serve him for the rest of his career. It is a forensic depiction of the planning and negotiation preceding a big hold-up, and of the treachery and violence that ensue.

Fun fact: Quentin Tarantino has said that this film noir was a significant influence on Reservoir Dogs!

Cine-real is the only film club in the UK to exclusively play films in 16mm format.
