You have used my dislike for KMD to defend your esteem for the film. This is fine with me. Having seen the film at least three times in full, including a pre-showing discussion in a film appreciation class, I feel that I gave it a fair shot. As good as its noir bona fides may be by the numbers, for me the sum of the film is less than the total of its parts. I'll not speak of this film again...at least until next time.
From thirty feet away she looked like a lot of class. From ten feet away she looked like something made up to be seen from thirty feet away.
