“I shall never forget the weekend Laura died …” begin’s Otto Preminger’s masterpiece of erotic obsession, jealousy, deceit and betrayal.  Hollywood noir at its best with Gene Tierney as the enigmatic Laura and Clifton Webb as the barbed Waldo Lydecker (“In my case, self-absorption is completely justified.  I have never discovered any other subject quite so worthy of my attention.“)

” ‘Laura’ almost succeeds in pulling the screen apart at the seams, if only to stitch it together again … the plot is deliberately perfunctory, the people deliciously perverse and the mise-en-scene radical.”  (Paul Kerr – Time Out)
