A struggling pulp novelist arrives in post-WWII Vienna to reconnect with an old friend, only to discover that his friend has been killed. The deeper he digs into his friend’s recent passing, the more he starts to wonder what everyone is hiding…
Yes, it’s old. Yes, there’s a lot of talking. Nevertheless, it’s generally regarded as one of the best movie of all-time and for good reason. Worth it for the soundtrack alone, but certainly doesn’t hurt that it has one of the finest scripts and some of the best dialogue you’re likely to find in one sitting. Really worth checking out, it really is that good.
It’s got a cool 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
