This essay employs psychoanalytic theory to identify a fetishistic imperative in the perfect crime that Walter Neff endeavors to commit in Billy Wilder's Double Indemnity. By favoring ongoing manipulation over goal attainment and satisfaction, Walter Neff engages in a virtuoso cover-up that represents a paradigmatic noir deception, inviting viewers to fantasize that there may always be "more than meets the eye.

We will never walk alone, in other words an early lyric asserts precisely that , to cite just one of the numerous time-honored sentiments worked over in the show, which stands apart from most film-to-stage transcriptions in retaining key personnel from the movie starting with Oscar-nommed director Stephen Daldry and writer Lee Hall. All this ups the ante on its young lead by demanding a stage Billy who can not only act and dance but also sing. This is quickly followed by a surreal sequence in which Billy dizzyingly weaves his way among a row of riot shields, his disorientation suggesting a barely pubescent dream tipped uneasily into nightmare. For all its choric pretensions, the music is banal at best and stridently orchestrated , lazy and maudlin at worst, with not one but two numbers between Billy and his dead mum Stephanie Putson to get the tears flowing. As he makes his escape off the stage and into the auditorium, a grand-standing musical turns suddenly to triumph in the hands of an emblematic character whose thirst for art seems inseparable from life. Directed by Stephen Daldry.
Billy is our online editor. He wear loads of different fashionable items, but some of these things he wears more than others. Jonesy gave me these shorts about two years ago and they have been my number one riding pant ever since. The big plus factor for me is the zip pockets; I love zip pockets and these ones are big and deep, great for keeping your phone, keys and a Mars Bar in. No holes in fingers or palms yet.
