    Everything to love about classic film noir in a neat package. The dated elements (general sexist bull shit) are packaged in such a way that it just kind of comes across as ironic and slightly humorous in a modern context. Huston really knows how to elevate a script with blocking and bringing out interesting nuances in his actors that consistently feels more aligned with modern acting. This was a slow burn, which resulted in a crime film that felt methodical and professional in its setup, execution, and ultimate downfall. Very nice

    What an excellent time. Great characters and lovely jokes, surprisingly never felt dated or mean spirited. My first time actually seeing Marilyn Monroe act and... hoo boy... to be a young lad in the 50s

    We could go back there, but everything is different now.Β 
    Some of them hardly even remember.
    It’s been a very long time.


    It’s going to take a while to adjust all of my ratings (to make this be my sole 5 star rating)Β but this is a masterpiece. Magnum opus undersells it...

    Third time is a charm, cried the most this time.

    I’ll never forget thisΒ 

    Somebody crowd me with love.
    Somebody force me to care.
    Somebody let me come through,
    I'll always be there,
    As frightened as you,
    To help us survive,
    Being alive.
