Billy Wilder at his most deceitful and treacherous. A sexy representation of the iconic femme fatale and man's ambition and lust impulses given certain circumstances. Expertly shot like a Hitchcock magnum opus, Double Indemnity is a top notch and spectacular film-noir. 98/100

It's hard to go wrong with the combo of billy wilder and raymond chandler, but I think the print I was watching was a little lackluster. the amazing dialogue more than made up for it, though.

One of my favorite Billy Wilder movies in which a man is seduced into more trouble then he would have ever wished for.

Double Indemnity review

An insurance man Walter Neff utilizes a malicious act which entails a claim under a double indemnity clause with Mrs. Dietrichson’s aid amounting to $50,000. Keyes, a Claims Manager with 26 years insurance experience, and Walter is called by the Pres. Edward Norton Jr. The Pres. feels it was suicide instead of accidental death. Lola, daughter of Dietrichson, approaches Walter and explains about her step mother. One of the best lines: Walter – “The stakes were $50,000 dollars, but they were the life of a man too, a man who'd never done me any dirt except he was married to a woman he didn't care anything about. And I did.” “I killed him for money and for a woman. I didn't get the money and I didn't get the woman. Pretty, isn't it?” Keyes – “Murder is never perfect. It always comes apar...

"Double Indemnity" by Yojimbo

Fast talking insurance salesman Fred MacMurray falls for beautiful but ice cold oil tycoon's wife Barbara Stanwyck and together they hatch a scheme to kill off her husband for the insurance money. Using the classic technique of beginning at the end, the entire story is narrated by a blood stained MacMurray as he gives his insight into the downward spiral his life took the moment he got involved with the irresistible femme fatale. Stanwyck is perfect in this role; glamorous, but with a steely gaze that belies the emptiness of her heart. As is MacMurray playing the sap who thinks he is in control, but Edward G.
