5/10 #10daymoviechallenge #doubleindemnity - I fell in love with #filmnoir when watching this film. I began my writing degree with #poetry & ultimately marveled over the poetic devices brimming in #filmnoir. The symbolism/ metaphors evoked through “Double Indemnity” with respect to #lighting #chiascuro #shadows #lowkeylighting lit up my synapses ⚡️⚡️ Fun Fact: Double Indemnity softened the #hayscode (moral code for film) - the film was rejected in 1935 & later accepted due to Wilder’s promise to make it more “moral.” In all, the ending shifted - #WalterNeff confessed to his crimes. #hardboileddetective #femmefetale #grim #postwar #1940s #1950s #filmmaking #screenwriting #nerdalert #blackandwhite

3/10 #Drive #10daymoviechallenge - I love that the #antihero does not possess a #backstory in this film - he’s an enigma. “Ever Heard the Story about the Scorpion and the Frog?” #ryangosling #careymulligan #oscarisaac #christinahendricks #filmmaking #neonoir #crimethriller

2/10 #10daymoviechallenge #marnie by #hitchcock & arguably one of his best films. The backstory behind this film’s creation is haunting - the bestial aspects of Hitchcock’s character surface in #seanconnery & are hard to separate from the film. The #horror was real. Nonetheless, #tippiehedren ‘s performance is breathtaking. She truly captures mental illness & I suspect part of it was due to the actual sexual harassment inflicted by Hitchcock. I am in no way condoning harassment / sexual abuse. Sometimes it’s really hard to detach a film from the history behind it. What are your thoughts? #thriller #filmmaking #masterofsuspense #hitchcocksblondes #tippiehedren #actors #actress
