Hail Gloria Grahame, Queen of Crypto-Feminist Noir!

Human Desire

In the UK, my old comrades at MUBI are doing a Fritz Lang noir double bill: his American masterpiece The Big Heat (which I’d already wrote about for them here) and its horribly underrated B-side Human Desire. My new piece on Human Desire is up, in which I sing the praises of Lang, Jean Renoir, scrappy crime flicks, and the eternal Gloria Grahame.

Enjoy!
