A Norweagian attempt to make a film-noir.
18 February 2002 | by (Trondheim) – See all my reviews

BLACKOUT by Erik Gustavson is a film trying to copy the classic film-noir look seen in CHINATOWN, and in any film-noir from the 1940`s. He uses all the classic elements, femme-fatale, dark streets, elements of crime, murder mystery . . . .

Some people I know have this film as one of their favourites, but my opinion is it`s just a weak copy of the great american films.

Later he did another copy of a great genre, road-movies, with the film WEEKEND which was a failure in Norway.
