Let’s put film noir into two distinct categories: surface noir and deep noir. A great example of surface noir: Double Indemnity. A great example of deep noir: Gilda. What makes Gilda deep? The film is not about how sexual desire can lead to a crime, as in Double Indemnity, but about how sexual desire can generate a great (and poisonous) amount of tension, in this case between Glenn Ford and the gorgeous Rita Hayworth.
