a terrific neo-noir
9 February 2001 | by ngerardSee all my reviews

When eccentric millionaire George Guest (Harrison) is found murdered, suspicion falls on auto repairman Steve Thaler (Byrne), who has been sleeping with Guest's oversexed trophy wife (Starr). Desperate to clear himself, Steve enlists the aid of his ex-wife (Rossa), a former detective. Filmed entirely in Los Angeles...China Basin is one of the most interesting shoestring productions to come down the pike in a long time. The story is peopled with interesting characters - especially Harrison, who bursts into song at regular intervals before being dispatched, and Rossa, a recovering alcoholic thrown off the police force after her divorce. There's a surfeit of kinky eroticism too, and it's just the typical grappling... China Basin a terrific neo-noir... -Ed Hulse
