There's no good reason for this site. The web is overstuffed with serious sites that detail the pleasures of film noir, and you know there are inumerable sites with endlessly detailed recitations of classic sci-fi.

This is not one of those sites. These aren't movie reviews, really. They're more about the style and appearance of the Black and Whtie World. No grand claims about how the shades of grey seeped into the morality of the picture, or any of that. It's just a place to put interesting or amusing images, with some excerpted scenes and trailers to make a point.

That's the long explanation. Short version: now that you've found it, you'll poke around until you're bored, or lunch is over. Enjoy your stay.

2014 UPDATE! The list of 2013 additions can be found HERE. Dozens more to chew through! Never a review, that's my guarantee - no, it's biography, inadvertent documentary, and the sheer pleasure of composition.
