There’s a long and storied history of film noirs set during a sizzling high summer. Why?
People can be tempted to do crazy stuff that they wouldn’t normally do, with sex and violence right at the top of the list. Remember last week’s review of The Hot Spot? We’ve got a link to the whole film (uncensored) below.
So without further ado, here’s a few of my favourites – roll ’em:
BODY HEAT (1981)
THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE (1946) AND THE 1981 REMAKE:
KISS ME DEADLY (1955)
SEXY BEAST (2000)
SWIMMING POOL (2003)
WILD THINGS (1996)
DOUBLE INDEMNITY (1944)
PLEIN SOLEIL (1960), REMADE AS THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY (1999)
