Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Double Indemnity (1944)

Directed by Billy Wilder

Starring Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck, Edward G. Robinson, Byron Barr


A great contrast with Sea of Love, another film noir. While modern noir films are audiovisually superior (in terms of color and sound), the older, black and white noir films relied on deep scrpitwriting (and more real, developed characters). The movie was a rehash of Sunset Boulevard, another Wilder film.

Keys was a funny little smartass. The hero was a pretty cool character, with some nifty one-liners. And the hero also looked a little like Pierce Brosnan.
