Odd Man Out

DVDizzy

  • Conclusion: Though not the great cinematic achievement that Carol Reed would soon make in The Third Man , Odd Man Out is an interesting and unconventional little noir thriller. Not surprisingly, Criterion treats this film to its greatest home video presentation to date in this substantial and highly satisfying Blu-ray Disc.

Odd Man Out

Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: A bit of on-screen text opens Odd Man Out , preemptively positioning the viewer's perspective in the direction of the film's characters rather than its politics. A not uncommon act of creative exoneration for a product of mid-century cinematic entertainment, the title card—which duly asserts the filmmakers' concern for "the hearts of the people" depicted, not the "struggle between the law and an illegal organization"—nonetheless situates the narrative at a universal...

  • Conclusion: The Third Man is rightfully considered to be Carol Reed's masterpiece, but there are certain aspects of Odd Man Out that are better. William Alwyn's score, for instance, may well be one of the very best ever done for a noir film. Criterion's technical presentation of Odd Man Out is good, but has little in common with Network's presentation of the film. As far as supplemental features are concerned, I think that Criterion's selection is clearly better. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • Conclusion: Carol Reed's stylish Odd Man Out has been recently restored and now brought to Blu-ray by British distributors Network. I personally think that it is as atmospheric and entertaining as Reed's famous The Third Man , and featuring one of the best soundtracks ever done for a noir film. If you could play Region-B "locked" releases, consider adding this one to your collections. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?

Odd Man Out

The Digital Fix
29 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Back on a limited release in selected cinemas in restored 35mm and digital prints for its 60th anniversary, Carol Reed�s 1946 film Odd Man Out stars James Mason as the member of an Irish illegal organisation on the run from the authorities. It�s a timely reissue in more ways than one, coinciding as it does with Carol Reed�s centenary, but its new theatrical release also gives viewers the opportunity to see it in a new light, and like last year�s re-issue of The Fallen...
