They Live By Night
Rated
Bowie is a naive young prison escapee, Keechie the daughter of one of his partners in crime. Bowie nourishes the absurd hope that his stick up jobs will net him enough to hire a lawyer and clear his name; Keechie dreams that the two of them will one day enter the world of "normal people" - take walks in the sunlight, hold hands in the movies. They are, this devastatingly beautiful film informs us before the credits, " a boy and girl who were never introduced to the world we live in," who inhabit a world of thieves, killers, informants, whores and shadowy go- betweens. Nicholas Ray's brilliant first film, based on Edward Anderson's classic crime novel Thieves Like Us (remade in 1974 by Robert Altman).
