Escape in the Fog (Boetticher, 1945)

Not Boetticher’s finest hour, but still somewhat competent as a WWII spy thriller. None of the acting really shines, nor does the set-up/dream sequence nonsense add up to anything other than contrivance. Still, there’s something about Boetticher’s use of the San Francisco landscapes that haunts the environment even when the film itself dives into luke warm pacing and a lame love story. This one is probably for hardcore Boetticher fans only.
