Clouzot's action thriller remains one of the most effective films ever made about desperate men, even if aspects of it have inevitably dated. It is a tense and gripping 'existential' action film that features complex muliti-layered characters whose flawed humanity is revealed when subjected to high pressure conditions. Clouzot's pessimistic outlook penetrates the stark slow burn narrative with dark psychological insight, and it's artfully directed in a non-self conscious manner.

Drags along for the first ~1h. Then it builds a great tension, has some supernatural elements.

A dirge of dirt and pain. The ending tries to twist the knife but it's just arbitrary and meaningless. Friedkin's remake, however accomplished and underappreciated, was more setpiecey, less character-driven, and less political.

Sometimes silly, sometimes terrifying. I actually quite liked the beginning scenes for the exact reason that they were so mundane and out of character for the movie we end up seeing afterwards. Such is life.

Somehow the frequent explicit depiction of mundane procedural elements (EG: gathering foliage and placing it under the tires to improve traction in mud) seems to work really well here. I think I was expecting more social commentary, but I got a really gripping thriller.

Also known as Super Mario Bros. 2, Wages of Fear tells the story of a thin Mario and a fat Luigi, and how, after being hired by Koopa, they set out across the desolate mushroom kingdom carrying Bob-ombs, with hopes of earning some coins and returning to Paris with the princess. Though Luigi loses his last life in area 5-3, Mario is able to deliver his cargo to the final castle, dodging all the fireballs within. Unfortunately, during the ending cutscene, a fatal glitch is encountered--game over.

Whenever you watch this movie-comparison with The Sorcerer (1977) is inevitable. After the first 45 mins I thought the movie is going to be a disaster, but the movie picks up fairly well after that. Too sad that's almost half of the film. The 1977 version has made the pre-journey part much crispier and enjoyable. The start of journey part in this movie is also a bit sluggish. You might want to check this out but remember to look at 1977 one as well.

(Director's Cut) Amazing film. The first act might be a bit slow, but it serves its purpose in setting up an emotional bond between the characters, and the stage for the poor man's quest for riches, in a way reminiscent of 'The Treasure of The Sierra Madre'. The journey itself is absolutely nerve wracking. With an ending that could easily come out of a Von Stroheim-film.
