Noirvember – Day 7 (Unpacking)


They is much to unpack in Double Indemnity but, to begin, I will leave us with this still. Look at the produce on the shelves and notice their symmetry. Gaze on the signs with the emphasis on ‘please’. So polite, so good. Everything is in it’s place with every tin or bottle’s label facing the front. Highly stylised and organised. Notice the feet – both facing outwards- and the replication in body language. Everything is ordered, neat, and tidy. So perfect and chaos free. So alluringly deceptive.
