An ex-boxer finds himself mixed up in robbery and murder.
This is definitely a minor crime film, but it is one of the best examples of the genre I can recall. Within ten minutes of the start of the story, the viewer comes to care about the main character and his situation. The story proceeds logically and rapidly, and many of the incidental characters are well-defined and likeable. It's not going to end up on many top-ten lists, but this is as close to a perfect movie as you're likely to see.
