Fifth about The Seventh

Thieves’ Highway

Thieves’ Highway: a very unusually set noir, but an effective one nevertheless. The particulars of this film make it fresh while the general themes make it recognizable. The grim and simple story is very engaging, as are the characters, grey and interesting, well played by the solid cast. Visually, it doesn’t set itself apart but the camera movements are elegant and serviceable while not being attention-grabbing.
