The Modern Film Noir Tale That Leaves You Wanting More
15 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

he Two Pamelas is a hard gritty Noir style film set in modern times where the gritty hard boiled detective aids the damsel in distress. I love this style of filmmaking because it's a throwback to some great movies and very talented actors. Our story begins with Detective Ray Galento (played by Robert Miano), who is assigned to a murder case involving controversial casting director, Burt Wald. Actress Darlene Patrick (played by Jennifer Day) wakes up in his office on the couch with Burt's cold, dead body laying there.Detective Galento delves in to the mystery and finds several suspects with very plausible motives.

The story is well written and keeps one guessing till the very end. The plot twists and turns and intrigue are masterfully crafted by the writer. Veteran Actor Macino is able to take this wonderful dialog and masterfully present it to the audience without "overacting". The chemistry between the cast worked very well which this film genre's fan base is very particular about.

Two Pamelas is also matched with brilliant cinematography from Jeff Hathcock who captured this perfect homage to Noir filmmaking. The film although set in modern times has cleverly included the all too familiar dutch angles and stylistic coloring in a different light. Some of the films scenes were colored in a sepia tone instead of the stark black and white. It was crisp and clean and each scene whisked you away to the next; never leaving a dull moment.

The film is not to be missed for fans of this genre. Unlike many modern adaptations of this style, Jeff Hathcock clearly had an understanding of what makes a good Noir film and has created a wonderful modern tale.
