Force of Evil (1947) Starts: 6:00 PM, Ends: ~7:20 PM
Starring: John Garfield, Thomas Gomez, Marie Windsor
Director: Abraham Polonsky
Plot: A mob lawyer figures out a way to consolidate all the numbers rackets in NYC into one, big, mob-controlled operation. The only problem is his older brother runs one of those small-time rackets, and he doesn't like the idea of being pushed out of business. Shot on location, this is a stunningly tough, terse thriller, made even more unusual by dialog that's nearly in iambic pentameter. Really. Listen for it... One of Martin Scorsese's favorite movies -- don't miss it!
