Beat the Devil
Independent Films, Drama, Comedy, Action
On their way to Africa, Bogey and Gina Lollobrigida get stranded in Italy while waiting for steamboat repairs. A band of rogues are also on hand, and these weird, seedy characters sit around in off-kilter close-ups and exchange wry dialogue. Eventually it's revealed that they all have secret plans involving Uranium deposits. It's nearly incomprehensible at times, and yet it has a captivating vibe that makes it compulsively watchable. It was a flop but has subsequently become a cult classic.
