Hands Off The Loot is on its last day on Mubi. French one about a pair of gangsters but the girlfriend of one tips their rival off about a stash of gold they have which leads to a kidnap. Well worth a watch

Where do you stand on neo and sci-fi noires?

include them all! as long as there’s some classics noir elements included and/or subverted, it’s fair game

Anyone seen any of The Whistler films?

Watched Mysterious Intruder last night (1 hour long, perfect) and apparently there’s a series of 8 which dont seem linked aside from there is a narrator called The Whistler.

watched this last night, huge fan of the ridiculous pseudo-psychoanalytic dialogue!

For something a bit different Ride The Pink Horse is a good one that takes place in a little Mexican town. I really enjoyed it.

@1101010 reminded me that it’s In a Lonely Place where this line is from - I had it in my head that it was from a Chandler novel

I was born when she kissed me. I died when she left me. I lived a few weeks while she loved me.

Think it’s one of my all time favourite quotes actually, just pitch perfect
