Double Indemnity

Double Indemnity ★★★★

Quick noir dialogue batting between MacMurray and Stanwyck feels like proto-Sorkin as they hide behind insurance-speak to flirt, setting off a delightful chain of tension, betrayals and the eventual rumbling of a not-so-perfect crime. Bad people doing bad things and looking great all the while, that's what the movies are made for.
