    Not sure where my comment went, but it seems to have vanished. Anyway:

    I found this absolutely hilarious. A 'must see' for film-noir fans.

    What boosted my enjoyment was recognising virtually all of the sampled films featured. It's spurred me to re-watch some old favourites.

    Great film.

    Is there a check list for the films sampled in this film? I think I've about done it.. 'The Bribe' being the tricky one - I had to get a R1 import from the USA. 1 year 5 months ago

    Hilarious, brilliantly parodies the noir-era, but in a friendly way. "Cleaning Woman!" will have you howling with laughter. And Marlowe may be the best thing about this picture. Everyone needs to see this. 1 year 8 months ago
