Laura (1944)

I had to watch this film, Laura, for my film appreciation class. I hadn’t watched too many movies in the Film Noir genre, but this one was very interesting to me.

I certainly wasn’t expecting the story to unfold as it did. I truly enjoyed it. It was interesting to me to see Vincent Price in the role of boy toy/gigolo in the movie. I am so used to seeing him in the horror genre, so I had a hard time with that. If I hadn’t been told it was him in the role, I would never have believed it.

Because I liked this movie so much, I went on to join the Roxie theater in its Film Noir discussions on Tuesdays. I’ll be writing about those movies, soon.

Laura is definitely worth a watch. I highly recommend it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book. I am not sure if I liked it bouncing back and forth between different years and locations. I wonder if I would have liked it more if it was chronological.

About halfway through the book, I knew how it had to end, but all the way up to the end, I wasn’t sure if the author had the same thought as I did.

Before I started reading the book I was a little worried that the suspense would be too much for me. It was fine except for just one part. I never felt like I needed to take a break from the book. It was definitely worth reading.

I enjoyed this book, but it got very intense for me at certain places. I had to put it down and go back to it a lot. It was worth finishing, mostly because I needed to know what was going to happen.

From word of mouth, I knew the ending was going to leave me thinking. It certainly did. I think it’s going to be on my mind for a while.
