Double Indemnity or The Postman Always Rings Twice?
30 Sep 07
I liked Double Indemnity best. The way she sneaked him in, and the way he was taken. You could see how she played on being the wife who worried about her husband not being willing to insurance his life and care for her, and the way she played on the sympathies of the insurance agent. It showed how manipulative that she was and how even an experienced salesman can get snowed in and how if things had gone her way, her stepdaughter's boyfriend would probably have gotten accused and executed for the crime. With the other one, it was so obvious, a young woman married to a much older man, and easily swayed by temptation. In Double Indemnity, it required more thought and you had to listen and watch to find out why.
