  • The Treasure of the Sierra Madre

    1948. USA. Written and directed by John Huston. With Humphrey Bogart, Walter Huston, Tim Holt, Bruce Bennett. “Huston’s (im)morality tale about greed and gold is one caustic take on the human condition; it’s easily one of the more cynical pictures to come out of a Hollywood studio without the name ‘Billy Wilder’ attached. Humphrey Bogart was never seedier or sweatier; John’s pop, Walter Huston, somehow manages to out-cackle and out-coot that other famous Walter (Brennan). P.S., Don’t even think about asking to see those bandits’ badges” (David Fear, Time Out New York). NYFCC Best Picture, 1948. 124 min.
