Three to Kill is political in the Situationist sense, dealing with the alienation at the center of the "Society of the Spectacle." A long time ago, I compared it to Hammett's Flitcraft parable -- it's about a businessman who is woken up from his mundane, but well-to-do (he has all of the material comforts he could possibly want, but is just numb), life by a "falling beam" (an attempt on his life, in this case) and how with changes him, and for how long.
