Style and Substance
2 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to watch Cat City at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. I wanted to see for myself what all the buzz was about. The screening was sold out to an enthusiastic crowd. Cat City renewed my faith in independent films. The film noir thriller has both style and substance. A terrific screenplay that kept me on my toes from start to surprising finish. Hollywood should take note that story does matters. The direction, cinematography, costumes and locations were spot on. Brian Dennehy gives an amazing performance and Rebecca Pidgeon has never been better. Cat City is a film that keeps you thinking long after you leave the theater.
