Noir wannabe that doesn't stack up. Mainly what you get here is a depressing film, where the actors have little plot to work with. Want a noir thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat? "Try Dial M for Murder", Hitchcock's original with Grace Kelly and Ray Milland. Lots of suspense, great story, and lots of atmosphere!

Okay time waster that was NOT very well acted. The story was fine, until the end, and not really closed off but left up to you to decide and in most cases that is great for conversation but this time it should have been closed up better IMO.

I liked this movie. Was there any bad language? What no F-words and blinding. If there was I did not pick it up. I just love those older model cars. The made in America when 95% was not from somewhere else. For me anyway worth a watch.

We found it engrossing and absorbing - didn't talk much except to try and decide did he or didn't he? LOVE LOVE LOVE Patricia Highsmith and watch anything adapted from her.

There was really nothing "Hitchcock" about this other than a couple scenes' lighting. The acting was a little stilted, and the story was pretty predictable, but we talked about it as it played and we pointed out interesting quirks and errors, so popcorn and a chat type movie rather than a thriller.
