First Monday Movies - The Killing - October 4th

Sterling Hayden plays veteran criminal Johnny Clay, planning one last big job before settling down to a respectable life with Fay (Colleen Gray). Teaming with several ex-cons, Johnny masterminds a $2 million racetrack robbery to be carried out with military precision. Unfortunately, all the crooks involved are losers and small-timers who find themselves in way over their heads. Director Stanley Kubrick's first major film clearly shows his vision of characters who seem to control their environment but actually are controlled by it. (1956/85 mins)
