MONDAY MOVIES: “Double Indemnity”

Some films get better with age — or at the very least, with life experience. I just watched “Double Indemnity” for the first time in nearly 20 years. What struck me is just how seeped in Los Angeles is it… References to the Hollywood Bowl, Glendale, Los Feliz, etc. — areas I now know better than when I watched it the first time. Not only do I have a geographically¬†sentimental attachment to it at this point in my life, but I also have a richer appreciation for the actors and what brought them to this movie. And the director. And the characters. And the film style.

Here’s hoping I appreciate it even more in another 20 years.
