The Killing

1 hr 25 min

Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller

...Like No Other Picture Since "Scarface" and "Little Caesar"!
The Killing was Stanley Kubrick’s first film with a professional cast and the first time he achieved public recognition as the unconventional director he’s now known for. The story is of ex-prisoners who plan to set up a racetrack so they can live a life without monetary worries. One of the more exceptional films of the 1950’s.
