The window of your bedroom slides open and the sounds of the city creep in. Birds chirping. Sirens wailing. A woman sings opera in the distance… badly. You stumble over to your favorite vintage thrift chair, whiskey in hand. You are alone. You’ve watched every 1940s noir genre film on every streaming platform imaginable and you’re waiting for Criterion Channel to release a golden oldie… No? Well, how would you do it?
