KISS ME DEADLY (1955) Robert Aldrich
Ralph Meeker is the best Mike Hammer ever put to film— the fact that we bear a passing resemblance is beside the point. This is the kind of movie you like if you like movies like TAKEN— i.e. no nonsense tough guy action where the bad guys get what’s coming to them in spades. I dig this one, so to does Criterion, the upscale DVD company that releases only the best and this is on their list.
