Quintessential noir film. You'll be treated to snappy dialogue, beautiful black and white lighting, double-crossing, and sly acting. The plot is intriguing and the way the characters snarl and leer at each other deliciously reveals some of the darker elements of human nature. An extremely influential film.

"Out Of The Past" by Yojimbo

A stranger uncovers the secret past of a small town gas station owner drawing him back into the shadowy world he was trying to forget. This was Robert Mitchum's first starring role and it's easy to see why it made him a star; he is superb as the ex-private eye who falls for the charms of one of the quintessential femme fatales in the shape of Jane Greer. Kirk Douglas also gives brilliant support as the great manipulator looking for revenge and the web of deceit he weaves makes for an intriguing plot that's complex without being overly convoluted. The icing on the cake is the artistic eye of Jacques Tourneur who makes the film one of the most visually attractive crime dramas ever made. Years ahead of its time, Out Of The Past is one of THE greats of Film Noir.
