Friday Noir: Kanal

An incredible piece of cinema. Nothing brings out the dark side of humanity like war, and this is one of the most hard-boiled war films that I’ve ever seen. Film nerds, take note: the opening shot is five minutes long, dragging the viewer through the streets of post-war Warsaw. If you can watch this noir film all the way to the end, the emotional payoff is a big one, a gritty mess of duty, determination, deception, horror and filth.
