[quote=“Rififii, post:4, topic:1961”]Least-- Ministry of Fear[/quote]I know “Ministry of Fear” isn’t Fritz Lang’s best film, but I really like it. It has good dark photography and a nice performence from Ray Milland. Oh, and the begining is excellent.

As a lot of you know I’ve only really started watching films like this the last year or so.

And by the looks of it I’ve unintentionally picked classics. I’ve not seen much so haven’t seen enough to judge but the ones I have seen so far I really enjoyed are Double Indemnity, Touch Of Evil, The Big Sleep and The Maltese Falcon. I recently bought Sunset Boulevard so will be watching that sometime in the near future.

Favorite: Double Indemnity (maybe?)
Least Favorite: The Lady From Shanghai (I did like it though, just not as much as the others I’ve seen so far)
Underrated: ?
Overrated: Kiss Me Deadly (I liked it but maybe I was just expecting it to be better)

Favourite: Dark Passage, Key Largo
Underrated: Red Light, Dead Reckoning
Overrated: The Killers, Gun Crazy
