Noir Send Up
29 October 2003 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that you see, have no expectations for, and it makes you bust a gut. I had the same reaction to Strange Brew when I first saw it. I love the steamy south-of-the-border feel, the noir farce, and the over-the-top characters. This is the kind of movie, if it had had a wider audience, that could have a cult following.
