Lately I’ve really been getting in mystery films, something I probably picked up from my dad. Just seems like they’re aren’t that many made now. In the 1990s and early 2000s, there were plenty of decent mystery and whodunit films - Blood Work, The Usual Suspects, Memento, LA Confidential, Seven… Hell, even The Big Lebowski was a great mystery movie.
So what are your favourites? I’m familiar with most of the classic - Rear Window, The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Dial M for Murder, M, and Double Indemnity. I guess looking for the less well known stuff I guess.
Third it. Miller’s Crossing is my favorite film ever. And I’m not even that big of a Coen Brothers fan, but just, everything about that movie is awesome. Acting, writing, visuals, style. It’s just about a perfect film.
The Big Easy
DOA (either version, both worth seeing)
Farewell My Lovely (1975 version with Robert Mitchum as a better Phillip Marlowe than Humphrey Bogart.)
Touch Of Evil
