THE LUSTY MEN (1952) 4.5 stars

Despite the cheesy title, this film is absolutely superb and completely original. Robert Mitchum gives us one of his greatest performances and demonstrates why he's a legend. Simply put: it's the STORY that is so remarkable. It's Ray's masterpiece.  As Godard would say, “Nicholas Ray IS cinema”.
