This week, Seeing & Believing kicks off a new series on film noir! Our “Summer of Darkness” begins in a slightly unconventional place with the Humphrey Bogart-starring In a Lonely Place, about a hotheaded screenwriter whose romance with a neighbor hits a rough patch when the police accuse him of murder. The thing is, maybe he is guilty? The guys also spend time with another dark story, the Dave Franco-directed thriller The Rental, about a group of friends who become the targets of a psychopath during a weekend at a seaside AirBnB.
