Dark Streets Reviews

Mike Scott
Times-Picayune

A flimsy blues-oriented Moulin Rouge with a touch of Chinatown-style public corruption thrown in.

NYC Movie Guru

Looks great and sound great, but it doesn't have enough heart and soul and, ultimately, seems too artsy-fartsy while leaving feeling cold.

There's nothing worse than a soft-boiled noir. Dashiell Hammett this is not.

The cast of lightweights come off as kids playing dress-up in their parents' old clothes.

An unwieldy combination of film noir and film musical, Dark Streets doesn't manage to be effective on either level.

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
Spirituality and Practice

A film noir musical fantasy that falls flat due to a weak screenplay.

Ron Wilkinson
Monsters and Critics

A poetic, rambunctious film that shows no matter how much we see, we never see, and no matter how much things change, the more they stay the same.

The roster of R&B artists heard on the soundtrack is impressive; the movie is not.

Sophisticated elements rise above this murk - Toledo as the MC and music that is a serious contribution to the blues repertory.

It's atmospheric like a steaming pile.

Dark Streets has atmosphere coming out its ears, but not much going on between them.

I love musicals, but I'd be hard-pressed to recommend this curiosity.

Austin Chronicle

A collection of 1950s B-movie mannerisms that would have made for a great parody if only it were capable of laughing at its own hard-boiled absurdity.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

According to its press kit, this is 'an atmospheric film noir musical fantasy,' 'a noir fever dream' and a 'blues-infused noir mystery.' If you suspect those are code words for 'pointless hooey,' you're right.

Dark Streets lost me early, real early, like still-adjusting-my-eyes-in-a-dark-theater early: Welcome to the blues, growls the entertainer with the mohawk and the full-length ringmaster gown.

...an inventively made noir with a terrific sound track of 12 original songs. This might not be for everyone, but if you like noir it's one that shouldn't disappoint.
