Dark Streets Reviews

Mike Scott

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.

Cole Smithey

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.

Spirituality and Practice

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

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.

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.

Tony Medley 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.
