Storyline

A pretty young songbird found murdered on Hollywood Boulevard. The crusty old Private Eye who was in love with her. A smooth-talking seductress who hires him to solve the crime. A bulldog detective with a nose for the truth and a leash held by city hall. A long list of suspects with a long list of alibis. A sprinkling of dirty secrets. A zest of clever lies. These are the ingredients of an homage to the PI films of Hollywood's Golden Age. Written by Belgau, Eric

Unique Experience
24 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was the poster that caught my attention to this film but after I watched it, it was totally different experience than I thought it would be. This film is unique in a sense. We see so many movies out there with guns and blood without good stories. This film is very calm and non-violent that it came to me as style which I love it. It flows so gently that you feel like you're floating on water while you're watching it. The score and music in this film is amazing. When the ending credit rolls up, the music keeps you in your seat. This movie is not for the audience who wants to experience hell of a ride. This film is for those who wants to see the characters and a story. It is beautifully lit and well acted. The film has a unique style. Highly recommended.
