When a gifted but washed-up screenwriter with a hair-trigger temper HUMPHREY BOGART (Casablanca), in a revelatory, vulnerable performance becomes the prime suspect in a brutal Tinseltown murder, the only person who can supply an alibi for him is a seductive neighbour (The Big Heat’s GLORIA GRAHAME) with her own troubled past. The emotionally charged In a Lonely Place, freely adapted from a Dorothy B. Hughes thriller, is a brilliant, turbulent mix of suspenseful noir and devastating Melodrama, fuelled by powerhouse performances. An uncompromising tale of two people desperate to love yet struggling with their demons and each other, this is one of the greatest films of the 1950s, and a benchmark in the career of the classic Hollywood auteur NICHOLAS RAY (Rebel Without a Cause).

  • New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack

If you love Noir then this is essential

Criterion knock it out of the park yet again with this all-time classic. Never looked better with this stunning new transfer, if you don’t own this then do yourself a favour and snap it up!

In a lonely place

A excellent, if underrated, gem. One of Bogey's and Gloria Grahame's best. Nice transfer and extras too.

A must see Noir

This is one of the best and smartest Film Noirs, a personal favourite by Nicholas Ray, and it comes on a great Blu-ray by Criterion. Love the extra features, beautiful cover artwork, cannot recommend it enough.
