      nick s This is a great noir movie. Lots of really nice camera work. A tantalising story concept that was well executed. Acting was spot on. Hard to fault. I can't understand why there are zero reviews. Perhaps because the plot is a little too familiar for noir fans? Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
