    It looks like I'm the first one on the board.

    I was just watching the 1950 remake of "M" on U-Tube. So what film noir movies have you watched this month.

    Big House, U.S.A. (1955): Combining a prison break movie with a documentary-style procedural about the kidnapping of a kid, it's a solid and noir-ish movie that might not stand out too much, but ticks enough of the boxes to warrant a viewing. 7/10

    I watched the Netflix version of my favorite movie The Third Man. What is the Netflix version you ask? It's the same movie we all know, except this Netflix streaming version displays subtitles for all non-English speech including: German and Russian dialog, Latin funeral rites, the play that Anna appears in, and even for characters in the movie in the theater where Holly and Anna are hiding! And these subs can't be turned off, so it's an altered version of the movie. The one thing it does the most is diminish the impression that Martins is a fish-out-of-water.

    :emoji_relaxed:~ That's a good film. I enjoyed it a lot but I admit that the novel was a better hard boiled tale. You should read it.

    :emoji_relaxed:~ The last film noir I've seen in was Laura (1944) directed by Otto Perminger. I recently saw it on Netflix and it was an excellent & thrilling movie. Loved it from the mystery in the interesting plot, style and the performances. I would recommend others to watch it.

    SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950) 4/5.

    An extremely famous and well-made American film about an unsuccessful screenwriter and a faded silent film star who draws him into her fantasy world where she dreams of making a triumphant return to the silver screen. I’ve never seen anyone play someone who’s insane quite the same way as Gloria Swanson does. Truly memorable and just a little bit scary…
