BRIGHTON ROCK (1947 + 2011)

British noir via Graham Greene. I saw both versions back to back and it’s amazing how creepy Richard Attenborough looked as a young man. I’d been told the earlier version is better; it’s somewhat more coherent, but only marginally so. If you like noir, I think you’ll like either one, especially the last scene – a knockout no matter which version you choose.

FF=1 for each (but in different parts)
