    Double Indemnity

    ★★★★½

    So I finally watched Double Indemnity, like Out of the Past, one of the most beautifully shot and complex film noirs. Each character motivation is subtle, and there is a bit of shades of grey thrown on people like Fred McMurray's protagonist for example.

    Its story very intelligently written, using loans as a perfect device for a murder to happen (all because of money). The cinematography is also excellent, not just focusing on the surroundings of the scene, but taking…

    This film is a brilliant character study. It seems to focus on Mabel (Gina Rowlands) due to…

    Dead Man's Letters

    ★★★★½

    A filmic masterpiece which drearily encapsulates a vision of humanity's end in a few days of radioactive mist. We see a man search for his son Eric, who constantly writes letters to but never successfully sends during the nuclear apocalypse (the letters give insight into his feelings, whether it be denial, optimism or despair, all narrated under a hopeless monotonous voice). Society slowly disintegrates into madness and hope fizzles into the abyss.

    This film is completely tinted in blue, dirty…
