Second 10 days of Noirvember 2013 (in order of preference)

Out of the Past (1947) dir. Jacques Tourneur [x]
This Gun For Hire (1942) dir. Frank Tuttle [x]
Dark Passage (1947) dir. Delmer Daves [x]
High Sierra (1941) dir. Raoul Walsh
Murder, My Sweet (1944) dir. Edward Dmytryk
The Big Clock (1948) dir. John Farrow
Gun Crazy (1950) dir. Joseph H. Lewis
The Set-Up (1949) dir. Robert Wise
House of Bamboo (1955) dir. Samuel Fuller
Killer’s Kiss (1955) dir. Stanley Kubrick

I hate to say it, but most of this run didn’t do that much for me. High Sierra has some great material, but the ending felt overly melodramatic. Murder, My Sweet was close to winning me over, but I got a little lost, and although Dick Powell may do a great job playing against his usual type, I can’t say he’s good enough that I wouldn’t have rather seen the role played someone who fits more into that mold (sorry, Chandler). The Big Clock and Gun Crazy had some fantastic moments, but left me cold overall. Finally, House of Bamboo and Killer’s Kiss were outright disappointments to me — Kubrick’s film struck me as surprisingly wooden.
