Farewell My Lovely (1975)
Not to be confused with the 1944 version whose original title was actually Murder My Sweet – this version stars the ever unimpressed, but always impressive, Robert Mitchum as Chandler’s noir hero, Philip Marlowe.
Third in Gary Hustwit’s documentary series on design, following Helvetica (2007) and Objectified (2009).
Chasing Amy (1997)
From director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma). Romantic comedy about a couple of comic book artists, one of whom believes he’s found the perfect girl, only to find out that she’s gay. Starring Ben Affleck (Dogma) and Jason Lee (My Name is Earl).
