“Masterly even by Bergman’s own standards.”
– David Shipman

(1969, André De Toth) Civilian oil industry expert Michael Caine – already enlisted to supervise fuel supplies in WWII North Africa – is ordered to take command of Nigel Davenport’s raiding group, everyone a criminal, to blow up a behind-the-lines Nazi fuel dump. De Toth’s last film. 35mm. Approx. 118 min.
“Among [de Toth’s] best work. Tautly shot and edited, Play Dirty carries to a poetic extreme the betrayal theme that haunts de Toth's strongest films.”
– Fred Camper, The Chicago Reader
