The Naked Dawn
Dir. Edgar G. Ulmer (1955).
One of Ulmers more elaborate cheapstersin color!from a script by blacklisted writer Julian Zimet, this faux Mexican, folk Western morality play is at once corny and avant and, as always with Ulmer, filled with visual ideas. Its hard to know if Arthur Kennedy is great or terrible as the bandito anti-hero but, whichever it is, its something.
