'The Third Man'
Exactly two years ago in this paper, I called Chinatown
the greatest film of all time. I meant to say: except for The Third Man
. Vertiginous expressionism, European accents, kinky intrigue
, the Ferris wheel scene, Joseph Cotten, Trevor Howard, the kitty at Orson Welles's feet, ORSON WELLES!!!—just a few highlights from the Carol Reed and Graham Greene masterpiece that yields new pleasures every time you see it. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT?
