Brute Force

(Jules Dassin, 1947). In his first critical success, Jules Dassin turned a routine prison movie into an over-the-top anti-fascist allegory—the joint is an American concentration camp run by a creepy Himmler type (Hume Cronyn) who gets his kicks torturing a prisoner while playing Wagner.
