The Maltese Falcon (again!)

Basically one of finest films ever made, Humphrey Bogart plays Sam Spade, the hard-boiled detective that set the standard for all that followed. A hunt for the mysterious falcon, lots of twists, double-crosses and maguffins, the script and pace are amazing, Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre work perfectly together.
There were earlier film noirs, THIS showed film makers how to do it PERFECTLY.

Every time I put it on, I intend to watch the extras but can't resist just watching the movie again, it's effortless viewing.

10/10
