A gripping, fascinating film, expertly produced and directed and performed with marked conviction by Frank Sinatra as the drug slave. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- More Damon Runyan than Irvine Welsh, but as entertaining as it is important. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Sinatra, by contrast, is superb, especially in a harrowing withdrawal scene. It's his movie...all the way. Full Review

Oct 23, 2007
Rating: 4.5/5 -- The film's reputation hasn't endured like some other mid-century depictions of addiction, like The Lost Weekend. But it's a terrific look at descent and despair, the sort of movie that can end on a sour note but still seem hopeful. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Director Otto Preminger emphasizes the lurid whenever he can ... so that the movie plays like a blurry, bleary night-on-its-way-to-morning. Full Review
