The woman in the fifth (La Femme du Veme) (2011)

Ethane Hawke plays a broke and desperate lit prof who lands a perfect job in a crapsack, seedy locale that should inspire him to write a masterpiece or die trying.

The gimmick: this is a moody and psychological retelling of film noir that brings out paranoia, darkness, and psychosis better than a mainstream thriller

Watch for: no coherent plot or storyline but an excellent atmospheric piece that hinges all on Ethan Hawke.
