>Ever since January began, I’ve been watching a noir a week almost. It helps the cabin fever, I swear. I love the ones set in New York, of course, but the L.A. ones from Billy Wilder are fucking awesome too. Anyway, Sam Fuller’s “Pickup on South Street”, which takes place partly on the Bowery, is probably one of the best looking ones. Its so claustrophobic and dark, and Thelma Ritter’s famous bed scene is genius. Jean Peters, who won the role over Marilyn Monroe, is a sassy bitch too.
