Choose Me (1984) In the middle of the night, when there’s no one else. This film is a conscious
throwback to noir of the 1940s — to movies made up of dark streets and wet pavements,
hookers under streetlamps, pimps in shiny postwar Studebakers, and people who smoke a lot.
It’s also about lonely, smart, complicated people who are trying to clear a space for themselves
and use romance as an excavating tool.
Directed by Alan Rudolph, and starring Geneviève Bujold, Keith Carradine and Lesley Ann Warren, it won the Toronto International Critics Award and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award.
