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?
