I bit the bullet and ordered the three Film Noir Archive sets and will try to not be a complete ass and consistently post reviews here come January.

The way I look at it is I'm paying Twilight Time prices for 711 Ocean Drive and The Lineup, paying 10-15 for The Crimson Kimono and then hoping to get my money's worth on the other movies I haven't seen. There's 27 movies total in the three sets so hopefully there will be some gems.

He's desperate. There are no more films noir to discover and present, so he has to look for films abroad and re-brand them. I like Muller, and I've met him a couple times,  but he's a hustler.

I have no problem with foreign films. To the contrary, I’d be happy to be introduced to them.

If, as you say, he needs to do something new, how about taking the festival to New York!

As he explained when he came to MoMA one year, he's like a visiting mafioso in the Big Apple. The local capos will let him bring a few pictures in, but he can't run a full-fledged festival. If the capos want a festival, they'll run it themselves.

There is not a venue in New York in which he can hold it?

The Black Book (1949) - aka Reign of Terror. Entertaining and gorgeously filmed by the GOAT John Alton, but the plot is silly and ridiculous. This isn't noir either even though the visuals couldn't possibly be any more noir. I find the overwhelming majority of period pieces to be stiff, stuffy bores, but there's more than enough here to warrant a watch - and it's a very American film of its time, in a good way. Any Mann + Alton collaboration deserves to be seen. C+

As for the transfer on the Noir Archives set, it surpassed my low expectations considering Mill Creek had involvement and the general reviews for the sets weren't exactly glowing.

Now we're talkin': https://vimeo.com/361849096

I'm guessing this will lead to a Blu very quickly . . .

Nothing with English subs on Amazon, just checked

The Killer That Stalked New York (1950) - Known to me as The Movie That Was So Forgettable That I Forgot I Saw This Recently. I'm not much of a fan of Panic in the Streets but it really shines in comparison, which is a shame because Evelyn Keyes is great and this has some really nice locations. But just save yourself the laborious 75 mins and just watch the trailer. Total turkey. As for the transfer on the Noir Archive Vol 1, it's okay, with the exterior stuff standing out. D
