Great Directoral Style
22 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While watching typical cable television fare I stumbled on Cat City. I found the desert noir film to be visually stunning with great use of the Palm Springs location. The best way to describe Cat City is to say it's an intensely atmospheric piece. Director Brent Huff creates a gritty, compelling world thick with the air of venality, corruption and desperation.

Huff proves to have a distinct visual and directorial style. For the most part the actors deliver. Brian Dennehy as the grizzled detective shines. It's refreshing to see Rebecca Pidgeon stand out in a film that is not written and directed by her husband, David Mamet. Julian Sands pulls off the hapless rogue to the tee.

Cat City gets well deserved kudo's from me.
