An absorbing Noir film from start to finish.
2 July 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

An outstanding addition to the collection of Modern Noir, Cat City delivers all the familiar elements of the genre in a fresh new setting and story. As noted by other reviews of the film, Palm Springs is an inspired backdrop for this tale of seduction and suspense. The story of a real estate developer who is down on is luck and will do almost anything to secure more financing from a hot young bigwig that comes to town is compelling, as are the characters that get roped into the tale

  • the developer's insatiable wife, his steamy lover, and the hard


boiled detective lured into to surveying them all. Huff masterfully ratchets up the scandal and suspense as the story deliberately clicks towards its extremely satisfying climax.

I highly recommend a viewing of this no nonsense, straight ahead noir thriller.
