If you like film noir 07 June 2009

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A wonderful short film by Producer/Director Stephan Szpak-Fleet. Change the date to the 1950's, cast Veronica Lake, Richard Conte, Fred MacMurray, and you would not know the difference between this fine short film, and anything produced at that time.

The film is a classic tale of murder,money,and double-crosses.Unlike other modern attempts at film noir, that rarely compare to the originals,this film pulls-off the genre quite well.

With a fine script by Robert Fleet, and some first rate acting, this film does not disappoint. Hilary Hesse is particularly good, delivering the dialog if she spoke in that "film noir" manner her whole life.

If you are a fan of Ed Begley Jr. you will really enjoy his work here. The only nod to the modern era, and a wonderful touch, is a hint of graphic novel (long before"Heroes"). Director of Photography David C. Smith captures the look and mood perfectly. I highly recommend this film.
