    Promising start quickly dissipates into ashy thin air. WARNING: contains barbed-wire hysterectomy

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 09 Jan, 2016

    Screwball'd noir

    Woman in row front of me belly-laughing at people getting shot obviously watching something else. Where do I find that cut?

    Autumn Leaves 1956

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 02 Dec, 2013

    Underseen prime Aldrich that predates MARNIE and VERTIGO in which the suspense is made from working through human trauma. Noirish shadows and Aldrich's fractured mise-en-scene reflects its protagonists' psyches.
