Betrayal, denial, murder and revenge - it seemed like just another Tuesday for Private Detective Jack Carter. But somewhere between the end of one case and the beginning of another, Carter's past catches up to him. Now, sprawled out on the asphalt breathing his last, Carter is faced with his final case: his broken life. Carter revisits the city of shadows to search through his memories, to find the reason things have gone so terribly wrong. Slowly Carter finds the answers he is looking for, but in this city of shadows, those answers always come just moments too late. Written by Brian Klemesrud

The mark of things to come...
20 October 2004 | by (The Homestead) – See all my reviews

... the truly amazing thing when watching Death of Noir is the detail and production quality for what was reported to be a minimal budget. The director clearly took painstaking measures to ensure a style and feel that most would not have followed through with given the budget - what I mean is that he must have been uncompromising in his costume/lighting/location/actor selections, etc. - things often lost in independent films with small budgets.

Inspired acting performances (including that of Steph Johnson) make this an overall pleasure to watch - begging the viewer to step inside 1940's back alley USA to see what is lying in the shadows, or into the nearest smoky bar where a friendly bartender (maybe even Zack McCoy) will give you a light and implore you to take a load off...

Overall well done - can't wait to see more...
