The Killing (Kubrick) vs. The Asphalt Jungle (Huston): Side by Side

Joel Bocko presents a side by side comparison of Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing and John Huston’s The Asphalt Jungle. Although these films were shot just 6 years apart, share a lead actor (Sterling Hayden) and center on elaborate heists, Bocko illustrates that the difference is in the details of how each filmmaker executed their vision for the films.
