Watched Kiss Me Deadly last night. This cult classic from Robert Aldrich owes more to surrealism than to film noir: it is a totally weird yet compelling exploration of urban paranoia from the pen of Micky Spillane.

While she only appears briefly at the start of the film, the performance of Cloris Leachman as the doomed Christina, pervades the film until the cataclysmic finale. A must-see movie!

I love this Italian poster, which has taken some liberties – unless I missed the nude scene…
