'olden Night (1976) is an oblique, classy neo-noir nightmare confection'
'Nuit D'or' (aka) Golden Night (1976) is an oblique, classy neo-noir nightmare confection, replete with a svelte, swivel-eyed, deranged Klaus Kinski prowling the shadowy city streets on an enigmatic, ostensible mission of vengeance; Is he dead? Is he innocent? Who knows? (the writer didn't!) This delightful, and highly stylized film is an enigma, wrapped inside of a cinematic conundrum, and all the better for it! Visually the film is profoundly striking, sharing many similarities with the vintage gialli of Mario Bava; or the deep, chiaroscuro palate of early Fritz Lang. (To be fair, there is a definite grim sensibility of his 'M' crawling through this playful and surreal bacchanal)
