Aro Recommended Big Heat, The


USA 1953, 86 minutes
Dir. Fritz Lang
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics / Film Noir


Aroview: Pugnacious cop Glenn Ford turns up the heat on civic corruption in this iconic film-noir from dir. Lang's 50s period. When a detective's suicide uncovers a trail of slime that leads right to the mayor's doorstep, Ford bullishly goes it alone against City Hall and a casually brutal Lee Marvin (likes throwing cups of scalding coffee into people's faces).
