The Sweet Smell of Success

The Coen Brothers really should re-make this. I saw this by accident last night (I thought I’d rented Michael J. Fox classic The Secret of My Success). One of the most enjoyable film noirs I’ve seen in ages. Curtis and Lancaster are both on top form and Alexander Mackendrick (director of The Ladykillers) doesn’t disappoint either.
