Member Picks: Kiss Me Deadly
Enjoy this classic noir, full of ‘blood-red kisses’ and ‘white-hot thrills’.
Dir Robert Aldrich
With Ralph Meeker, Albert Dekker, Paul Stewart
Mickey Spillane’s tough PI Mike Hammer moves from book to screen in this Cold War-paranoia noir, where he meets an unstable woman who’s being chased by undesirables. As well as containing ‘blood-red kisses’ and ‘white-hot thrills’, the film also has a beautiful depiction of 1950s LA.
‘It’s a great example of classic film noir, my favourite movie genre’
