The Postman Always Rings Twice

The Postman Always Rings Twice ★★★½

Cora Smith: It's too bad Nick took the car.

Frank Chambers: Even if it was here we couldn't take it, unless we'd want to spend the night in jail. Stealing a man's wife, that's nothing, but stealing a man's car, that's larceny.

The wages of sin. Yummy, well-shot film noir (in the same vein as Double Indemnity - their source novels share the same author), with savoury performances and excellent dialogue. It's just a shame the plot gets in the way and doesn't quite make it into an all-time favourite for me... but it came mighty close.
