White Heat is one of the top classic crime-heist dramas of the post-war period, and one of the last of Warner Bros' gritty crime films in its era. White Heat is an entertaining, fascinating and hypnotic portrait of a flamboyant, mother-dominated and fixated, epileptic and psychotic killer, who often spouts crude bits of humor. The dynamic film, with both film noir and documentary-style elements, is characterized by an increased level of violence and brutality along with classical Greek elements.

Brilliantly directed by Raoul Walsh, it returns a more subtle James Cagney to the kind of thug role that made him famous ? Time Magazine, Sep. 19, 1949
