Border Incident (Anthony Mann, 1949)

***½
USA



A semi-documentary B-noir about the Mexican and US governments joining forces to squash the racketeering of illegal immigrants. There is too much exposition and factual reconstruction, but by the third act the tension escalates to an uncomfortable degree and builds with one violent, uncompromising setpiece after another.
