The Skeleton of Mrs. Morales

The Skeleton of Mrs. Morales ★★★★½

Men are afraid that women will mock them and poison their eagles, women are afraid that men will kill them and display their skeletons in a shop window. 

The poster and the title had me expecting some cheesy 50s freak show, which wouldn’t necessarily be bad; but instead, this is a smart, sharp, hilarious, beautifully shot, and deliciously cynical crime tale. It would’ve killed as an EC comic (they did dozens of similar stories.)

Feels modern and hip, with a ton of lovely little directorial touches. Loved it!
