  1. For October, I've picked Fritz Lang's 1945 film noir Scarlet Street. As I said in the other thread, I believe this is one of the greatest film noirs, and I love the way it blends many the traditional elements of noir: tons of shadows, bland everyman protagonist, femme fatale, heavy dose of cynicism, a far fetched plot with many juicy twists, and frequently shifting sympathies. Here's Ebert's guide as to what comprises a film noir, which could come in handy. And this chart is good to link too. I'm looking forward to discussing it, and re-watching it this week. I'll post more thoughts then. The whole film is available on YouTube. It's not the greatest quality, but it's also streaming on Hulu, and DVDs are fairly easy to come by.

    ...for the first time, at a midnight showing. (On a side note I got to see Rear Window the same way). Wow. I really enjoyed it even though I was squeezed next to a 300 lb. man who kept falling asleep and snoring during the film. The soundtrack was amazing for what it chose to keep in and what it chose to leave out. The acting was great all around. The story was fascinating in how it was told. And the issues it raises are universal. You can be on any side of the death penalty and still feel like your opinion is reflected in the film. Not that I'm trying to start anything political. There are other threads that deal with that. So please keep this thread to a discussion of the film. Thanks.
