The Third Man

One of my favorite films is Carol Reed's The Third Man, starring Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. It has a great screenplay, written by the English Novelist Graham Greene. It has a unique soundtrack, mostly zither music. The best part of the film is its terrific black and white cinematography. It has a stark, high-contrast noirish look, which I like. If you haven't seen the film, you should. If you have no interest in seeing the film, watch this clip, which has the best sequence of the film. Warning: This clip has major spoilers, so do not watch it if you have not seen the film but plan to.
