Bad Day at Black Rock
From the time John J. Macreedy steps off the train in Black Rock, he feels a chill from the local residents. The town is only a speck on the map and few if any strangers ever come to the place. Macreedy himself is tight-lipped about the purpose of his trip.

"A nerve-shredding masterpiece." EMPIRE

"Tracy is at his subdued, thoughtful best, while Ryan perfectly conveys the ignorance behind racial prejudice and Borgnine and Marvin are memorable heavies." TV GUIDE

"Sturges laces his allegory with mounting tension." SLANT

"By far John Sturges' best film. By far Spencer Tracy's best performance. Biting (and darkly comic) dialogue, gritty desert setting, gripping and intense plot. Considered subversive in 1955 because of its expose on the mistreatment of the Japanese during WWII and its protest against McCarthyism, it's still relevant today in its story of racism and xenophobia--issues bitterly worsened due to Trump's tyranny." GRAVEYARD POET, MUBI

"a portrait of American distrust leading into the potent paranoia of the Cold War" FILMCRITIC.COM
