Monthy Column: Film Noir Review

“Tough break, Marsha.” The heist movie is a subset of film noir that rewards brevity. The characters in these films are professionals, articulate men who find success in choosing their actions, and their words, carefully. Mere seconds can mean the difference between the heist of a lifeti......
