Movie of the Week: In a Lonely Place (1950)

Nicholas Ray directs Humphrey Bogart, Gloria Grahame and Martha Stewart in this noir romance where a troubled woman falls for the hot tempered, hard drinking screenwriter she has just provided an alibi for… but what if he did murder that girl?

Watched with Natalie at the Cameo on her birthday. Dark, brooding, poetic, sexy, witty, mysterious. This is a real fucking movie. Mood: a whisky glass stained with blood and lipstick. Get lost in its spell. Perfection.
