DOUBLE INDEMNITY

DOUBLE INDEMNITY is one of the defining triumphs of classic Hollywood's most original creation: the film noir. Writer/director Billy Wilder solidifies all the hallmarks of the noir style with this suspenseful tale of capitalist greed and post-war anxiety. An insurance claims manager gets a familiar feeling of foul play while investigating the death of a man whose wife just had him sign a double-indemnity policy through her insurance agent and lover. If you like deep shadows, hardboiled dialogue and ruthless femmes fatales, then this is your golden standard. (Tommy Swenson)
