A fantastic, sarcastic, neo-noir gem
28 October 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I had the good fortune of seeing BLACK DAYS at a sneak preview recently, and all I can say is that this is a wonderfully-realized, modern adaptation of noir that everyone who loves comic books, noir, and sarcasm should see. Directors Jim Morley and Ari Margolis have managed to turn the femme-fatale story up-end and backwards, but, at the same time, steadily guide the audience through its own world of twisted humor and knowing self-depreciation (did that make any sense?) In short, this is an absolute original, and one worth seeing at any possible opportunity.
