Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review "Double Indemnity'' has one of the most familiar noir themes: The hero is not a criminal, but a weak man who is tempted and succumbs. In this "double'' story, the woman and man tempt one another; neither would have acted alone...Few other directors have made so many films that were so taut, savvy, cynical and, in many different ways and tones, funny. After a start as a screenwriter, his directorial credits include "The Lost Weekend,'' "Sunset Boulevard,'' "Stalag 17,'' "Sabrina,'' "The Seven Year Itch,'' "Witness for the Prosecution,'' "Some Like It Hot,'' "The Apartment'' and "The Fortune Cookie.'' I don't like lists but I can't stop typing.

Review For all the talk about the genre, only three films truly define film noir: The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon and Double Indemnity. While the former two are unquestionably classics, the latter is oh so much more fun...Director Billy Wilder choreographs the movie beautifully. The actors, the lighting, the cinematography, the sets - and, above all, the dialogue - are woven in an intricate pattern that echoes whichever side of the story ("It must be" vs. "It can't be") Wilder wants the audience to believe at the moment. Did we mention the magnificent lighting?
