3 things about Jules Dassin’s UPTIGHT

Uptight [1968]

1. Carnival: a fake gun and funhouse mirrors.
2. Daisy/Clarence and the “decadent oriental” interior design of his apartment.
3. The story ends with his burial.

A truly fascinating film, especially the ways in which it both has and hasn’t dated.
