The KillingDVD - 2011
The killing: "Stanley Kubrick's account of an ambitious racetrack robbery is one of Hollywood's tautest, twistiest noirs. Aided by a radically time-shuffling narrative, razor-sharp dialogue from pulp novelist Jim Thompson, and a phenomenal cast of character actors, including Sterling Hayden, Coleen Gray, Timothy Carey, and Elisha Cook Jr., The Killing is both a jaunty thriller and a cold-blooded punch to the gut. With its precise tracking shots and gratifying sense of irony, it's Kubrick to the core"--Container.

“You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.” -Winston Churchill
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ― Martin Luther King, Jr
The Killing: Johnny Clay: "...Suppose, by accident, you do get picked up. What've you done? You shot a horse! It isn't first degree murder; in fact, it isn't even murder; in fact, I don't know what it is. But the chances are, the best that they could get you on would be... uh, inciting a riot, or shooting horses out of season, or something like that." Nikki Arcane: "The way you put it, Doc, you make it sound real simple, you know Pops?"
The Killing: Maurice (to Johnny Clay): "...You have my sympathies, then. You have not yet learned that in this life you have to be like everyone else -- the perfect mediocrity; no better, no worse. Individuality's a monster and it must be strangled in it's cradle to make our friends feel confident. You know, I've often thought that the gangster and the artist are the same in the eyes of the masses. They are admired and hero-worshipped, but there is always present an underlying wish to see them destroyed at the peak of their glory."
The Killing: (Trying to escape from the airport) Fay: "Johnny, you've got to run!" Johnny Clay: "Eh... what's the difference?"
Killer's Kiss: Gloria Price: "Can't you get it, Vinny? To me you're just an old man. You smell bad."
