one of the most seedy noirs you’re likely to see. it’s outside the typical noir window (1941-1958), but it has the feel no matter what you call it. it’s about a prostitute who tries to escape her past in a new town with a new profession. she falls in love and, just when things are looking their best, they all fall apart. it’s this moment that is the most shocking of the film. liked it more this time around.
