The Pawnbroker
This awesome film is driven by a powerhouse performance by Steiger as a victim of his past reminiscences with the Holocaust. How Lee Marvin won that 1965 Oscar from Steiger is an ongoing mystery to me! Lumet's direction of the camera is brilliant. Everything fits together perfectly. The lighting, color and music are all blended to create an eerie world for us.
