Quotes

The Singer: [sings] There's a street in Manhattan / With a house that has no windowpanes / And the lamp that burned all night / Listen man, go away from me / I lived there so long ago / With a guy you wouldn't care to know / God it's cold here / Nothing good here / Go man / Not tonight

Atmospheric road movie through a Big Apple
19 August 2014 | by colayaSee all my reviews

This is a road movie. We travel with two men through New York's nightlife in one night (hence the title of the film). The stops are Broadway performers, recording studios, burlesque dancers, brothels, iconic places such as Time Square, the UN building, Rockefeller Center, etc. and along the way we breathe the atmosphere, a jazz trumpet, the neon lights, hot dogs, shadows and dark alleys. The pretext for this ride (in this case the "plot": an investigation of a UN delegate disappearance and some dilemmas of yellow journalism) is just a pretext, as in any good journey. Recommended for road movie fans, New Wave connoisseurs, New Yorkers, jazz lovers, nightlife owls and noir-ish buffs.
