Movies Devil in a Blue Dress (1995, Denzel Washington, Tom Sizemore) Published 7 months ago on October 27, 2018 ‘You said don’t shoot him, right? Well I didn’t. I strangled him. If you didn’t want me to kill him, why did you leave me alone with him?’ So says the cold-blooded Mouse (Don Cheadle) to his acquaintance Easy Rawlins (Denzel Washington) in a line which captures the charms of this cool, smart film noir by acclaimed director Carl Franklin. Fans of cult novelist Walter Mosley won’t be disappointed by this faithful adaptation which even managed to spawn a new film genre, black noir . The setting is Los Angeles, 1948. Ezekial ‘Easy’ Rawlins has just lost his job and needs money, fast. After meeting the mysterious Dewitt Albright (Tom Sizemore) in a blacks-only bar, he agrees to try and find the white fiancee of mayoral candidate Todd Carter (Terry Kinney). Little is known about Daphne Monet (Jennifer Beals) except that she has a penchant for blue dresses and black men – hence the decision to hire Rawlins. However, two days, two corpses and a beating at the local police station later, Easy’s not so sure how much he really needs the $100 fee. He summons reinforcements in the shape of old friend Mouse – who manages to combine charm with shocking displays of brutality – and the two men slowly start to unravel a twisted tale involving political corruption, racism and good old-fashioned greed in the City of Angels. production details USA | 102 minutes | 1995 Director: Carl Franklin Writer: Carl Franklin, based on Walter Mosley’s novel. cast Denzel Washington as Ezekiel ‘Easy’ Rawlins Tom Sizemore as DeWitt Albright Jennifer Beals as Daphne Monet Don Cheadle as Mouse Alexander Maury Chaykin as Matthew Terell Terry Kinney as Todd Carter Mel Winkler as Joppy Albert Hall as Degan Odell Lisa Nicole Carson as Coretta James Jernard Burks as Dupree Brouchard David Fonteno as Junior Fornay Albert HallCarl FranklinCrimeDavid FontenoDenzel WashingtonDon CheadleDramaJennifer BealsJernard BurksLisa Nicole CarsonMaury ChaykinMel WinklerTerry KinneyThrillerTom SizemoreWalter Mosley Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes2 days ago America Unearthed: Vikings in the Desert (Travel Tues 28 May 2019) Vikings in the Desert : Scott Wolter investigates alleged Viking artifacts found in the Arizona desert by using state-of-the-art XRF...
