As hard-hitting as its title, _Brute Force_ was the first of Jules Dassin’s forays into the crime genre, a prison melodrama that takes a critical look at American society as well, starring Burt Lancaster.

The Naked City

Master noir craftsman Jules Dassin's dazzling police procedural _The Naked City_ was shot entirely on location in New York. As influenced by Italian neorealism as American crime fiction, this double Academy Award winner remains a benchmark for naturalism in noir.
