Charlie Varrick. Don Siegel, 1973. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
The suspense plays better than most "twisty" movies, which isn't saying much, but hey! Very retrograde w/r/t race & gender. Lots of cringe moments. Most compelling is the strange morality. Film is populated by killers, liars, snitches, backstabbers, greedy motherfuckers, and scumbags. Nobody is morally correct. A man's worth is based solely on his ability to outwit other men. A bleak but resonant vision of society.
