The Big Heat
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Fritz Lang


One of the most classic of the film noir genre and one of the darkest and most violent, as well. A bomb goes off and although it was meant to kill a detective, someone else dies in his place. Now he's determined to catch whoever is responsible; unfortunately, the more he searches and the more he learns, the more it seems like the culprits might be the police themselves.

Press

"...Among the best movies Fritz Lang made in America after fleeing the Nazis. It's certainly the toughest..."

- Mike Clark, USA Today

"Fritz Lang's thriller stunned America upon release, but even today the coffee-in-phizzog scene still shocks....Brutal."

- Daniel Webb, Total Film
