Eddie Muller kicks off "Shadows of Suspense" with a real attention- getter:

"If I had one movie to show people to explain what film noir is, it's 'Double Indemnity'."

That perfectly summarizes this as a documentary; it's not just about one movie, but how that one film defined a genre. What "Blade Runner" did for TV commercials and music videos, "Double Indemnity" did for a slew of eager directors willing to co-opt the femme fatale and venetian blind lighting.

But even as a history lesson, this is entertaining, rounding up an array of talking heads (all of whom seem like genre afficionados) and doling out the factoids.

TCM quality stuff.

7/10
