  • The Big Bluff

    The Big Bluff


    An average Noir from Billy Wilder's brother that never seems to really get out of second gear until the very end, by which time it's a little too late to salvage.

  • Murder by Contract

    Murder by Contract


    Noir with an injection of new-wave, Murder by Contract is a captivating thriller depicting the story of a rookie hitman as he wrestles with complications when he takes on his latest hit - a dame about to turn state's evidence against his new boss.

    A great performance by Vince Edwards, an off-kilter score and a witty script all add to the film's compelling charm.

    Stylish, cool, calculating and told with a minimalist sometimes light-hearted flair, this one turned out to be a very different (and by extension unique) end-of-era Noir and a very pleasant surprise too.

    Before they added all the slo-mo, this was apparently a 6 minute music video.
