Laura (Preminger, 1944)

“The devil is in the detail” as they say, and that could also be Laura’s tagline. What I really liked about this one is how the crucial clues—the body with its face blasted off, the twin set of clocks, the glamorous model who’s frequently mentioned but never seen—are so easily bandied about in front of our eyes that we don’t even pause to consider their significance until long after the film begins clicking them into place. 197 more words
