Twist of Lime

The Third Man is one of those classics that does a few things really well. Everybody but the protagonist is in on a secret or two, and their habbit of constantly befuddling the hero is lots of fun. Third Man is also another one of those films with delicious black and white cinematography that serves only to make the proceedings more intriguing.

Can you tell I can barely remember the film twenty-two weeks later?
