Subway (1950) is Tooker's masterpiece. A woman, wearing a red dress, a blue coat, and an apprehensive expression, walks through the station. The ceilings are oppressive and low; the corridors zoom. Zombie-like men in overcoats skulk about. The environs are sterile and the atmosphere airless. It's a place resolutely bereft of human contact. As an allegory of urban paranoia, the picture can't be beat.
