The two films I chose to compare and contrast are my two favorite films of the course Double Indemnity and The Last Seduction These films prove that although many years have passed decades in fact the plots of many film noirs have stayed the same Through all the similarities however the transition from film noirs of the 40s and modern film noirs is very much prevalent These films involve the most intricate of murder plans in any modern movies I have seen and though the one in The Last Seductions doesnt exactly go without problems it could easily have worked had Mike been up for it These movies are decades apart but deal with the exact same issue double indemnity Its actually quite shocking when I watched both movies back to back and heard the words double indemnity in The Last Seduction Double Indemnity begins in classic noir style with a sense of something bad to happen immediately when Neff walks into the office as the music that defines this genre follows him up to where he makes his confession Neff s confession as the narrative for the entire movie makes it very easy to follow the sequence of events because it is like someone sitting down to tell you a story The flashbacks to him sitting there smoking his cigarette as he knows he has been sucked into doing something he wouldnt ordinarily do capture the true mood of whats to come What he also cant come to grips with is the fact that all this was over a woman Both men in the movies though you only see them after one particular girl seem to be quite fickle Walter sees Phyllis at the top of the stares and almost immediately is at her mercy The scenes where the men in both movies meet the girls that they think are the women of their dreams are almost identical Walter tries to sweet talk Phyllis
