Across 110th Street [Blu-ray]


What It’s About: When three men rip-off a mob collection point in Harlem, killing members of Doc Johnson’s (Richard Ward) crime organization and the Mafia, as well as two police officers who attempt to stop their getaway, will they be able to get Across 110th Street and escape Harlem? Will the cops or the crooks reach the thieves first?

The movie begins with two men, Jim Harris (Paul Benjamin) and Joe Logart (Ed Bernard), pulling off a heist disguised as cops. They break into a counting session with five gangsters, three black and two white, tallying up the rackets money for that day (some $300,000). They take the money but nothing goes as planned and Harris ends up killing all five men. In a movie filled with remarkable plot details, the first and foremost is that Harris is never viewed unsympathetically. He’s also not condoned. Across 110th Street has little time nor desire to hammer home social messages in treacly Stanley Kramer fashion, rather, it seems content to simply tell the story and allow the brutality of life that pervades every character in the movie to be the price paid for their sins.

Across 110th Street,
Pimps trying to catch a woman that´s weak
