" Date: 11/21/2021 Viewed: Criterion Channel First Viewing Note: After hearing good things about Devil in a Blue Dress over the years, I have always been curious about it.

I figured I'd check out Devil in a Blue Dress, which is currently streaming on the Criterion Channel (As of 11/21/2021). I'm glad I finally saw it because it's a great film. Devil in a Blue Dress is a cult classic in my opinion. I li"

"First viewing - Aug. 10th A neo-noir with Denzel in the "detective" role? This was totally up my alley. I dug everything about it, and I'm so glad I gave it a look. It may not have crossed my personal line of greatness, but I'd gladly sit through it again. "
