By the looks of it, no one will ever see these comments. But hey, this movie has a great name! What a poignant flavor "limehouse" has! The juxtaposition of "lime" and "blues" gives a great image! I recommend this movie on that basis alone. I think you'll find if you watch this movie, that the name has great significance. I'm not going to shower you with plot details (this being a crime movie, almost anything I say would spoil some surprises) but go ahead and check this one out if you can find it. Four stars for LIMEHOUSE BLUES!
