Who wouldn't want to watch it after that description?

Earlier this week, I recorded a movie called Blast of Silence off of TCM. The film is considered a lost classic of Film Noir and is a favorite of Martin Scorsese's. It's even been released by the Criterion Collection on DVD.

Of course, I found out all this info after the fact. The main reason I recorded it was the synopsis that the Dish Network gave it:

"A hit man comes to New York to kill a gangster and gets the gun from a big guy with a beard."
I think whomever was writing the film descriptions was bored that day.
