Storyline

In a smoke-filled dive in Buffalo, NY, David Marx tells us his tale of obsession, betrayal, and murder - leading him to an uncertain fate "underneath Niagara Falls." David tells us how his beautiful redheaded ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Barnes, has disappeared and how he ended up the guardian of the 2.5 million dollars that "was supposed to have bought Jen's safety." Three nights ago, David finds police detectives Crane and O'Keefe trashing his apartment. Taking him to Police Headquarters, they interrogate David about Jennifer's disappearance, and Crane - in the name of Jen's father, the rich and powerful Ethan Barnes - brutalizes poor David in hopes of getting a confession out of him. When falsely accused, what's a film noir hero to do but search for the truth himself? Written by Paul DeNigris

A Film Noir movie based in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area
13 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, it was beautifully filmed, and well written, the cast was very good, and features popular scenes from my home town that shows the city of Buffalo in a great light, Paul DeNigris is on his way to bigger and better things, and hopefully he will be bringing film-making to our fair city. I always enjoy seeing independent films, they are far more interesting and creative than the big budget commercial blockbusters, While this film is very stylish, it also has a great plot with plenty of twists at every corner. I was also impressed with the extra features included on this DVD. If your looking for a fun and very well made independent film you will not be disappointed...RENT THIS ONE!
