May 1946: The Postman Always Rings Twice

Wow! This just looks so… restored! It’s the crispest 40s movie I’ve seen. This 2K bluray isn’t even a Criterion release.

Oh, this is the one that was remade with Jessica Lange and Jack Nicholson, but I don’t think I’ve seen this version.

I can’t get over just how weird and abrupt this movie is. It’s fascinating; it’s like it’s written by somebody who doesn’t quite understand how movies work.

So weird.
