A classic must see film done beautifully in black and white with many stunning very artistic shots in the Film Noir style.
Aside from that, the theme is SO important as we are still battling as a society between the Socialist group think of mediocrity and conformity and the rare creative individual of genius who holds to their principles and are the ones who really are responsible for all human achievements. Once again many are falling for the programming of Marxist ideologies which always failed on all levels, and to the point of mass atrocities. Also depicted is the power the media has to manipulate public opinion. This is a valuable lesson as we we are seeing this today at an unprecedented level.
The themes in this film are still current and need to be understood for the dangers collectivist ideologies really pose to all but the elite controllers on top who benefit.
