Double Indemnity

Scene from the 1944 noir film “Double Indemnity,” directed by Billy Wilder. I watched it for the first time this past weekend and I loved it. Out of all the movies I have seen, Double Indemnity seems like the quintessential noir film, with its snappy dialogue, venetian blind shadows, and repetitive music score. I’ve been reading more about how the film came into being and it’s interesting to me to get a glimpse of the relationship between Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler, both of whom collaborated together to create the script (which is excellent).
