Sinful Dwarf review

Joseph Losey Collection

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

I have wrapped up the reviews of the titles in Optimum UK’s ‘Joseph Losey Collection’ boxset, with three of the director’s lesser known works. The Big Night (1951) is a well written Film Noir from his pre-witchunt days. Sleeping Tiger (1954) was one of his first films from after the move to Europe, and a superb early performance from Dirk Bogarde. Mr Klein (1976) is a fascinating wartime drama filmed and set in Paris, starring Alain Delon.

I have also added a page for the Joseph Losey Collection boxset as a whole.

Stay tuned later this year for a Joseph Losey biography and more reviews.
