Transit ★★★★

"Transit" is a fascinating entry into the neo-noir cannon as being the only film (that I know of) that is simultaneously set in WWII and modern day, at the same time. Meaning, the story is written as if it's WWII, but all of the technology is modern. This decision gives the crisis of the impending Nazi presence in France a real immediacy that totally makes this story stand out.

While some plot points are a bit fuzzy on why they happened or what their purpose was, this is a memorable tragedy that dares to turn its lack of period detail to a plus.
