If this had hit America in 1956 everyone would have seen this in film class. A delight- ludicrously overstylized, hysterically cruel, and most importantly, always a step or two ahead of its audience. I can’t say as I get got often, but this has more than a few spectacular rug pulls (and a killer dream sequence, and multiple layers of narration). It’s everything I want out of a noir and more!
