The Postman Always Rings Twice ★★★½

One of those films that I always think of more fondly in retrospect than I do when I’m actually watching. The peaks are so high that one forgets the truncated rhythm of the narrative and all the dull segments in between introductions of new characters and new twists, which the film does right until the very end. Lana Turner is a real marvel and there’s a lot to admire, but I remain cool on the film as a whole.
