An energetic youngster (Rayan Sarlak, in a star-making performance) keeps exploding into song and scrambling around the car. All are fussing over their sick dog and getting on each others’ nerves; only the mysterious older brother (Amin Simiar) is quiet. It’s clear they’re on a road trip across a rugged, often extremely beautiful landscape – but where are they headed?

Crafted with the lightest to touches and deeply indebted to Dashiell Hammett’s fiction, this film was, in the grand tradition of cinematheque classics, a box office disappointment upon release. Time, however, has granted the film it’s deserved place as one of the great works of neo-noir.

Roman Polanski's first English-language film is a dark psychological horror and utter tour-de-force that has remained atop critical lists of horror films, thrillers and explorations of the decent into madness.

Filmmaking titan, John Huston’s debut film may have been a remake of an adaptation of a piece of pulp detective fiction but it remains the film that defines the film noir genre more than any other.
