A tribute to John Huston's "while the city sleeps" ?Perhaps so ,but the movie significantly fails in its purpose.It's the umpteenth story of cops and robbers.
An armored van is attacked and the gangsters hide the loot in a graveyard.RIP.
But a young photojournalist saw it all!And he took a whole lot of pictures in order to...... achieve a scoop? infuriate the cops (it was trendy in the wake of the May 68 events)? blackmail the gangsters and make a lot of dough?He cannot make up his mind (or is it the script writers who cannot?)For the script is mediocre,the dialog is poor ,the director spineless.
