Summary
Has dialogue ever been more perfectly hard-boiled? Has a femme fatale ever been as deliciously evil as Barbara Stanwyck? And has 1940s Los Angeles ever looked so seductively sordid? When slick salesman Walter Neff walks into the swank home of dissatisfied housewife Phyllis Dietrichson, he intends to sell her insurance, but he winds up becoming entangled with her in a far more sinister way. It is one of the most wickedly perverse stories ever told and the cynical standard by which all noir must be measured
