T-Men

Overview

This exciting Anthony Mann film noir is one of the meanest, toughest and bleakest of the bunch. It's also one of the best. Again filmed by famed cinematographer John Alton in a pseudo-documentary style, this police procedural presages later neo-noirs such as The French Connection and To Live and Die in L.A. (both directed by William Friedkin), as well as countless lesser crime films over the years. If you've never seen an Anthony Mann film noir, this is a fine place to start.

Overview

This exciting Anthony Mann film noir is one of the meanest, toughest and bleakest of the bunch. It's also one of the best. Again filmed by famed cinematographer John Alton in a pseudo-documentary style, this police procedural presages later neo-noirs such as The French Connection and To Live and Die in L.A. (both directed by William Friedkin), as well as countless lesser crime films over the years. If you've never seen an Anthony Mann film noir, this is a fine place to start. You may also want to check out his other classic noirs, He Walked By Night and Raw Deal (the latter of which is available from VCI). As with VCI Home Entertainment's disc for Raw Deal, T-Men is offered in a full-screen aspect ratio and with its original English language mono soundtrack. Both picture and sound are fine. The disc also comes with excellent video "liner notes" from award-winning crime writer and filmmaker, Max Allan Collins, who dishes up some informative anecdotes about the making of the film, as well as why director Mann matters so much when it comes to noir. Also included on the disc are some theatrical trailers for some other classic noir films.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Anthony Mann's first big success is a tightly written pseudocumentary on undercover Treasury agents, which owes much to John Alton's stunning chiaroscuro camera work. Like Dragnet, which it resembles in the use of the voice-over narration typical of the period, the film was based on an actual Treasury Department case. In his Notes on Film Noir, director Paul Schrader wrote to the effect that noir is not a genre per se, with specific attributes of character and setting, but a style, based on tone and atmosphere. The film is nothing if not a triumph of style over substance, and while the byzantine plot is kept in sharp focus, it's the visual inventiveness of Mann and Alton that's makes it work. Film historian Todd McCarthy included scenes from the film in his acclaimed documentary on the history of cinematography, Visions of Light (1993).
