Ossessione (1943)

A speeding truck. Ominous music. Impending doom. So begins the least known – though debatably greatest – movie adaption of »The Postman Always Rings Twice«. Moving at a steady, deliberate pace through a detailed tapestry of Italian life, where »half saints, half rascals« struggle with fate in their sad world of poverty, prostitution, and tainted passion. Deadly sin comes at a high price, guilt and remorse take their heavy toll in this mix of neo-realism and noir. 

In heat. In my book.
