Kiss Me Deadly
This is a film I have been meaning to watch for some time. It is a 1955 film based on the Mickey Spillane book of the same name.
This was a low-budget film which is obvious at times, but there are plenty of scenes and acting that make it look a whole lot better.
Quentin Tarantino was obviously influenced by this film and used a particular scene from this in one of his own films, as well as some other directors. I won’t spoil it for you, but you will recognise it when you watch this.
There is plenty to read about this film online, it was quite influential, and controversial at the time.
