Noir does it again

It is mind boggling to me that more people aren't obsessed with Film Noir. At worst it is hilarious campy dialogue and great clothing / props but... at best it is simply one of the greatest cinematic experiences attainable. Point 2 for Film Noir is how much of it is out there.
Just when you think you've seen it all, bam you find another amazing stunner.
For example I went to the video store last week not looking for anything in paticular and what should be on sale recently restored but Double Indemnity. Then in that same week my bestfriend Brianna finds The Killers, a double DVD set with the original movie(1946) and the 1964 remake with LEE MARVIN!!!!
Dear god we stayed up late watching all 3 movies and each one was outstanding!!!
If you haven't already seen

Double Indemnity

The Killers 1946
The Killers 1964

do so immediately!
Both are so beautifully shot and the acting is superb.
