They say that the style of film noir is heavily influenced by German Expressionism, and that is something that is very clear with this film, with its heavy contrast between black and white and parts that were rather surrealistic. It was the style of the film that made this film really interesting to watch because this movie is basically about a dying man who is hiding from the police. He was shot in the arm and is losing blood this whole movie, so we see scenes where we see his state of mind, like when he imagines he is back in jail, or when he hallucinates while at the painters house. I felt really bad for Kathleen, this woman who loved him who would rather die than see him go back to jail. In the end, she gets herself and Johnny both killed.
