Classic Noir Story

by Rouben Mamoulian

Laura is a classic film noir that explores many of the themes of the genre without having a lot of the distinctive look. Noir is a state of mind, and Laura is a lot of fun with witty, rapid-fire dialogue and quirky characters. It’s filled with interesting twists as we find out more about the woman who is murdered and realize that we know less and less. A good film to see to see more of the subtle characteristics of film noir.
