Carol Reed United Kingdom, 1947

Renton47's rating of the film Odd Man Out

Given its secondary-canon status, it's easy to forget how strange this film is; the premise of a dying man looking for somewhere to rest his weary bones allows for an ephemeral and heightened quality. It's the draw but also the hindrance, as the necessarily episodic quality prevented me from investing much (similar to The 49th Parallel). My sleepy nature helped me relate, but also necessitates a revisit sometime.
