#181. Double Indemnity (1944)
Why It's In The Book: "Double Indemnity is the archetypal film noir, the tale of a desperate dame and a greedy man, of murder for sordid profit and sudden, violent betrayal." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
ChrisLejarzar - 10/10
"Double Indemnity is a terrific film. It explores the notions of greed and lust in a very intelligent manner. This deserves to be mentioned among the greatest films of all-time."
bpdreview - 10/10
"The best noirs I've seen are about sexy, smoky style over story, and it doesn't get sexier, smokier and more stylish than this early Hollywood masterpiece."
Darwin - 10/10
"Double Indemnity comes together so seamlessly that it doesn’t seem planned by humans, but by cinematic gods."
Floating Red Couch - 10/10
"And it's not like taking a trolley ride together where they can get off at different stops. They're stuck with each other and they got to ride all the way to the end of the line and it's a one-way trip and the last stop is the cemetery."
Jeff Coté - 10/10
"There are lot of long shadows, moody darks and piercing lights, all of which make Double Indemnity a very exciting film to watch."
johnlgilpatrick - 10/10
"Double Indemnity does absolutely everything right. The pacing is brisk. The dialogue crackles with energy. And the direction is great without calling attention to itself. But it's the performances that elevate the film above great film noir to cinematic masterpiece."
Mad Hatter - 10/10
"I would give my right arm to think up something as twistedly poetic as 'How could I have known that murder could smell like honeysuckles?' "
Movie Guy Steve - 10/10
"There is not a single reason to not watch this film at least once a year."
Siochembio - 10/10
"I love Double Indemnity so damn much that I have essentially no capacity to speak about it lucidly or objectively. All I can do is wildly flail my long fangirl arms and screech about how it’s pretty much the best movie ever made. There. I’ve warned you."
Alyson - 9/10
"I still can’t look at a woman with dark eyebrows and perfectly molded blond hair without thinking of Double Indemnity, and I would never trust them."
Brian Vs. Movies - 9/10
"quite possibly the best film ever made from an insurance term...unless someone made a thriller called Water Damage: The Movie and I missed it"
KimWilson - 9/10
"The twists and turns of this thrilling Film Noir are enough to make your pulse race. You pair the stellar storyline to the raw sexuality that Stanwyck brought to her role as Phyllis and this is a wonderful film to just sit and absorb."
Shubhajit Lahiri - 9/10
"... dialogues drenched in hardboiled cynicism... and the bleak irony of the climax, made it one of the greatest movies in its genre; hell, in any genre."
Adolytsi - 8/10
"The film gives probably the best sales pitch for being a claims investigator I've ever heard."
Klaus Ming - 8/10
"MacMurray's fine performance as the quick-talking unscrupulous salesman-turned murderer is somewhat humorous, considering the stereotypical good-guy roles which he would become known for later in his career".
Squish - 8/10
"The story is... so very simple yet filled with details and characters and utterly logical twists that put this film's storytelling in the realms of the highly probable, while still having that fantastically filmic quality that is Billy Wilder's strong suit."
Robert - 8/10
"So close to being a seven but Stanwyck was just too good for that."
alfindeol - 7/10
"Old fashion kissing was more akin to a head butt than a smooch."
TSorensen - 7/10
"It is not my favorite noir, but it is good stuff and certainly worth watching."
Overall Rating: 9.1/10
