Feb 8, 2007
Rating: B+ -- John Ford won the first of his four Oscars for this tale of betrayal, set against the Irish Revolution of 1922, which is more impressive visually than thematically. Full Review

The film's gorgeous black-and-white cinematography -- with its streams of fog and sparkling cobblestones -- gave audiences a new glimpse as to the potential artistry of cinema. Full Review

Certainly it is the best movie of the year so far, and it is doubtful if any subsequent one will be able to surpass it. I am inclined to believe, moreover, that it is the finest thing which the American movies have ever produced. Full Review

Strongly handled, with no prettifying touches, The Informer is one of the most impressive pictures of the year. Full Review

Description by

Gypo Nolan stumbles through a foggy Irish night, his brain pickled in whiskey and his soul tormented by shame and fear. Gypo is an informer, a turncoat who betrayed his friend to the British police for 20 pounds. Now he can't spend the money fast enough - nor can he run from his treachery fast enough - as he brawls, brags, swaggers and lies his way toward his fate.
