  1. Speaking as an attorney doing criminal law, this is a horrible lineup. There are only three people. One of them (the short guy) doesn't match the description at all. The witness is being intimidated overtly by the cop telling him who to ID and covertly by the protagonist giving him the evil eye. I haven't watched the movie yet so I don't know if the protagonist committed the crime, but this is the kind of lineup that could easily produce a false ID.
  2. What struck me about this scene is that he is instantly smitten with her. He is so flummoxed after she walks in that he drops some change on the floor. He tries to be Mr. tough guy, but he is putty in her hands. I was similarly entranced with her character. She glows in the sunlight. When she sits down in the cafe, her skin appears flawless with a subtle inner glow. She is also very mysterious and resists his somewhat pathetic attempts to ingratiate himself with her.
  3. As a musician I thought it was cool that the beat of the music matched the ticking of the clock. The music gradually enhanced the ominous feeling created by the clock.
  4. Today they could use CGI to make Bogie look different until he has plastic surgery. But I don't think this would improve the film. POV forces the viewer to (with some queasiness) root for Bogie. Sometimes the limitations of an art form lead to superior results. There is a lot of tension a bit later when one is waiting to see if Bogie's face is disfigured by the surgery.
