RARA-AVIS: The Killing

Has anyone else seen this film?

It stared Sterling Hayden, Elisha Cook, Jr., Marie Windsor, and bunch of the "usual suspects" for films of that type. Definitely film noir and low budget, and directed by Stanley Kubrick.

It's a caper story with lots of violence. It looks to me as if the original Oceans 11 was functionally copied from this one.

A group of crooks plan to rob the big purse from a serious race--as opposed to robbing a casino. Things go right but the viewer knows they will go wrong--all they way to something bizarre happening to the stolen money.

Not bad, but not great either.

Other opinions, including comments on the above?
