Double Indemnity

Double Indemnity ★★★★★

"you were thinking about murder, and I was thinking about that anklet."

Billy Wilder combined with one of the greats of crime Raymond Chandler to dazzling effect in this essential film noir.

Every line is solid gold and the atmosphere is just dripping. It's filled with all the tropes we are all familiar with but it's execution means it holds up regardless.

Double indemnity is a monumental film and with each Wilder film I see the more annoyed I am that I didn't watch his films sooner.
