The Lady from Shanghai

The Lady from Shanghai (1947) - a film noir directed by and starring Orson Welles (as well as Rita Hayworth and Everett Sloane).

The truth is, I want to like Orson Welles movies more than I actually like Orson Welles movies, but parts of this were pretty great.

Best costume in the film.
There should be more movies with scenes in aquariums. Right now I can only think of Closer

Of course Romeo + Juliet has the amazing fish tank scene, but that's not actually an aquarium.

Literal hours of my teenage life were spent lying in bed at night, listening to "Kissing You" and imagining making out with whatever boy I had a crush on at the moment. 

Yeah... I just started playing the song and now I'm feeling almost painfully nostalgic and entertaining notions of going on facebook to look at the profiles of high school boyfriends/crushes. CEASE, MALLORY.
