Not Good
20 January 2019 | by jlgprimusSee all my reviews

Canal Street is not a very good movie. The narrative is incoherent due to countless plot holes to maie the story even possible. The radio segments bring very little to an already exhausted film. The ending feels rushed to the point it's confusing. The cinematography throughout feels awkward, and it feels more like a straight-to-video film versus a theatrical release.
