Double Indemnity

I saw this at the Film Forum with Lauren on Saturday. It is a noir directed by Billy Wilder. It is simultaneously very funny and very unsettling. It is run through with Raymond Chandler (“Up in Medford, we take our time making up our minds.” “Well, we’re not in Medford now, we’re in a hurry.”) The leads are odious. The supporting characters are decent.
