    I think the fact that the Edward G character is so inherently clueless is comedic. But in a very sad and pathetic way. He believes what he truly needs to believe in order to fall for the woman and be scammed.
  2. Great list! Unfortunately, the only of one those I have seen is Hammett. Which is definitely worth a watch for sort of "meta" reasons.
  3. Santa Fe, NM. Are there other New Mexicans in on this?
  4. Both M and Le Bette Humain (sp?) are both on Youtube in full.
  5. I knew that the fringe benefit of taking this course would be to discover films I'd never heard of. (If nothing else in life, I like to consider myself on an expert on the obscure). On that note, I am pleasantly surprised by both STRANGER ON THE THIRD FLOOR and WOMAN ON THE RUN. As we have been instructed, I have been watching for direct links to German Expressionism. Stranger most certainly has that in the dream sequences that almost blindsided me as a viewer. (Without giving anything away, the sequence is particularly nightmarish and seems absolutely timeless). Woman on the Run is, quite simply, a solid little movie. The obvious lesson is how the location of San Fransisco is used to create a noir-ish atmosphere. What else is there to recommend it? The story is constructed in a propulsive manner, and there is absolutely no wasted time. Beyond that, I loved the last ten or fifteen minutes that were set on the boardwalk. They had a very eerie Carnival of Souls feeling to them. Any other fans of these two movies?
  6. Have you gotten a chance to watch Woman on the Run yet? Really good location work. The last 10 to 15 minutes are a stand out, as they take place on a boardwalk. The whole sequence has an eerie Carnival of Souls feeling to it.
