Laura

1944, 88m
A nostalgic b/w murder mystery with sufficient twists and turns and swinging of the needle of suspicion to keep one glued till the last bullet is fired.
Quoting Roger Ebert:
"That “Laura” continues to weave a spell -- and it does -- is a tribute to style over sanity...the whole film is of a piece: contrived, artificial, mannered, and yet achieving a kind of perfection in its balance between low motives and high style."

I previously watched it with a cheap DVD. It's a wonderful film I'm willing to revisit through HD or Blu-ray.

Noire is addictive as it is nostalgic..
