Reviewing old movies for fashions.
Movie: 3 (on a scale of -10 to 10). A husband and wife have a dysfunctional, abusive relationship and the wife ends up murdered. Murder mystery ensues. There is a nightclub involved. The movie took far too long to get to the murder, and the pacing was slow for my taste overall.
Fashions: 7 (on a scale of 1 to 10). The women have plenty of excuses to wear spectacular evening dresses. Also, it's fascinating to see 1940's evening dresses, which tend to be floor-length and cover the arms-- such a contrast from modern red-carpet wear, which often tries to get away with as much nudity as possible. Watch and ruminate on the question of what makes a dress sexy, if it's not strategic exposure of skin.
In short: Solid pick for fashions, movie a bit dull.
