"A fantastic, thoughtful and stunningly photographed thriller...A fascinating supporting cast and a rousing score by William Alwyn add brio to Mason's performance." — Dave Calhoun, Time Out New York

ODD MAN OUT is the first in Reed’s series of classics (THE FALLEN IDOL, THE THIRD MAN, THE MAN BETWEEN) depicting a postwar world in which traditional moral underpinnings have been thrown out of joint. Mason had a breakthrough role as Johnny McQueen, leader of an IRA-like organization in Belfast. Weakened by years in prison, Johnny botches a factory robbery that leaves him gravely wounded and separated from his comrades. Like other Reed films, ODD MAN OUT becomes as much about its city as its protagonist, as Johnny undertakes an increasingly hallucinatory journey through a nocturnal, snowy Belfast populated by a gallery of motley characters drawn with Dickensian vividness. 35mm.
