Movie Watch 2016: Noirish Thrillers

Based on the “see it,” “stream it,” or “skip it” principles as used by reviewers at Just Seen It:

Kiss Me Deadly (1955)
Bizarre but forward thinking noir featuring a humorously boorish antihero. Stream it!

Night of the Hunter (1955)
Eerie and odd old thriller about a dangerous preacher and two children who get in his way.

Passion (2012) 1.5/5 SKIP (Netflix) (link to review)
In spite of the fascinating first part and wonderful performance by Rachel McAdams, the film devolves into a melodramatic and confusing mess. Read my review here. Skip it!

Nocturnal Animals (2016)
Though beautiful and occasionally thought-provoking, the plot ultimately come across as misogynistic and cliche. Skip it!
