Double Indemnity

Double Indemnity ★★★★★

The walk of a dead man.

Once again, a frustrated insurance employee finds himself entangled between passion and profession, only this time the transgressing excitement of their romance proves itself inalienable from the thrill of the crime, mostly because money gets in the way. Had I not seen or not paid proper attention to the screenwriting credits in the opening perhaps I'd not think that, but with Wilder & Chandler in mind, and associating the first one's style more with the always clever, quick-witted, relationship exchanges and the latter with the more classically noir, gloomy, crime stuff, it honestly felt as each one of them was trading lines and scenes with one another in impeccable harmony. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's their 'Otis'. Oh and the shadows here are spectacular.
