Noir Watch: D.O.A. (1949)
Format: Noir Alley on TCM on DVR
You know how sometimes you hear about the premise of a movie and you write the whole thing in your head in about 5 seconds? I mean, I'm often wrong, and I find that really nice, but other times the movie wraps and you say "that is exactly what I thought it was going to be" And even that isn't all bad. But that's more or less why I never bothered seeing this film, and, here we are, and I am reporting out that D.O.A. (1949) was more or less exactly what I expected it was going to be.
A fun ride, yes, and... no - I didn't guess every twist and turn (who could?), but "sounds like a dude running around trying to figure stuff out as he tries to beat the clock" - done in one, mi amigos. What I wasn't anticipating was the weird tone of the film which, alone, kind of makes it worth a peek.
