Episode 55: Double Indemnity
We've got a new episode wrapped in tissue paper with pink ribbons around it as we watch the 1944 film noir classic Double Indemnity. We comment on the movie's influence on the dark visual style of the genre, debate the misogynist and feminist implications of the femme fatale archetype, and delve into the metatextuality of Barbara Stanwyck's wig. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and the murderous smell of honeysuckle.
