The Third Man

5

Long established in the pantheon of greats, Carol Reed's 1949 noir - written by doleful English novelist Graham Greene - remains a gripping exploration of moral shadowlands. Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) is a naive writer of Western potboilers, reluctantly realising that his childhood friend Harry Lime (a masterful Orson Welles) has become a ruthless racketeer in corruption-riddled, post-war Vienna.
