Double Indemnity

Double Indemnity ★★★★½

Dialogue scenes feel like action set pieces. They keep you in suspense, rising and falling beautifully, and leave you in awe in the moments of silence that come afterwards when you can finally breathe. 

Love the black-and-white cinematography and how it uses light through the lack of it. The character's shadows become powerful figures, invoking paranoia as you feel as though the characters are never alone and suggesting that there is a darker, more evil side to their personalities. Secrets hidden in a silhouette, where anyone can abandon their three-dimensionalness and risk their lives, whether it's for love or for money.
