6.17.2015 Sweet Smell of Success

Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 10.36.18 AM

One thing this movie does really well is that it manages to be critical of pretty much every character without ever feeling as cynical as a movie like this now would. Everyone is doing the wrong thing, but I always understand why. No one is just evil. This makes its observations much more powerful.
