Double Indemnity [1944]

Even when they reveal the ending right after the initial credits stop rolling, Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler manage to keep the suspense high. Double Indemnity might seem slow and talky, because it is, but I really can’t complain. The cast, particularly Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G. Robinson, delivers. Besides, this film features some of the best dialog I’ve ever heard! I’m so in love with the script.
