Carol Reed's Odd Man Out is the rare movie classic that grows more relevant and compelling with every passing year.

The movie grabs an audience but doesn't let it get its bearings. Reed plants the seeds of a harrowing destiny in the opening minutes.

Odd Man Out (Janus Films) Starring James Mason. Directed by Carol Reed. Unrated. 116 minutes. At the AFI Silver through Thursday.
