This November, we're having three Amazon Watch Parties to take a look at a few cornerstone films that help give a great idea of what characterizes the Film Noir movement.
You don't get Eddie Muller or Alan K. Rode, but you do get me and Jenifer, and we've seen some of these films.
THIS WEEK: BEST LAID-PLANS NOIR
Not all noir is detectives and whatnot. Sometimes it's folks just getting in way over their heads. Usually because they're chasing a woman they probably shouldn't. Or a man they shouldn't. YMMV.
This is *the* best-laid plans noir. Based on a book by James M. Cain, co-written by Billy Wilder and no less than Raymond Chandler, and masterfully acted by Fred MacMurray, Edward G. Robinson and powerhouse Barbara Stanwyck, it's the top of the mountain for noir.
So get ready for some of the greatest dialog you'll ever hear in a film. And some of the worst people you'll see in one.
