Summary

Summary: [Border incident]: The Mexico-California border is the power-keg setting for a tale of government agents versus greed and murder. [His kind of woman]: Hard-luck gambler Dan Milner is in sudden luck. He'll get $50,000 to hang out at a posh Mexican resort. $5,000 now and the big payoff when the reason he's been sent there is revealed. Of course, the gangsters making the offer don't expect him to live long enough to collect. [Lady in the lake]: Philip Marlow searches for a missing wife--and discovers a different woman's corpse in a mountain lake. From there the waters get deeper. [On dangerous ground]: City cop goes to the countryside to help solve a brutal murder and falls in love with a blind woman who's brother is a suspect. [The racket]: A straight-arrow cop and an old-school gangster find a common foe: big shots who run crime like a corporation. [Film noir : bringing darkness to light]: Clips from noir classics and little-known gems, plus interviews with modern noir aficionados like directors Christopher Nolan and Frank Miller, writers James Ellroy and Brian Helgeland and others shape this multifaceted exploration of the movie style that grew out of the hard realities of post-World War II life.
