the killing is a copy of the asphalt jungle...

also, his first film, killer's kiss is good.
saw macabe and mrs miller. very, very impressive. the bad guys at the end were really menacing. dvd has altman commentary that i have not listened to yet. macabe was very authentic.
Are we not forgetting THE KILLERS (Siodmak, 1946)...all the chops and connections?
i saw no ties between asphalt jungle and the killing except hayden, a heist flick, and a group of men that plan to get something but fail in the end, which is very huston.

most of the people i know feel about 2001 the way you do. i saw it on a big screen at a revival. it escaped me, but i was probably 25 years old?
