I, Tonya sort of depicts a modern take on the type of small time racketeering that in Classic Hollywood would have focused on boxing or horse racing. One of the bennies of watching a lot of Film Noir is that you become very familiar with a large range of actors from the classical period Noirs through the transitional Noirs to our current era of Neo Noir who seem made for certain parts and they easily slip into certain

  8. Here is my review from 2012 Suspense 1946 Another weird Noir that's a mix of suspense, crime, love story and ice capades?

Let's run them down. Leaving Kiss Me Deadly
