Kiss Me Deadly|
Mickey Spillane. San Francisco. A Mysterious box. A Reel to Reel Answering Machine. Hot vintage sports cars. Even hotter Velda.
The opening sequence is of a barefoot woman, running down an empty road, panting and crying. The panting and crying continues after Mike Hammer picks her up, and he has nothing to say to her, so the first five minutes of the movie is her sobs and heavy breathing. It sounds so much like a woman having sex that I think it was intentional.
Two thumbs way up.
