Critic Reviews for Somewhere in the Night

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1) | DVD (10)

Joseph L. Mankiewicz's nervous nightmare (made in his first year of directing) isn't an all-hallowed member of the noir canon -- it's fairly slick, and Mankiewicz has little or no existentialist cred. But it sings the school's black-hearted lament.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Out of this familiar premise, Mankiewicz has fashioned a classic film noir.

As a straight piece of melodramatic staging, this Twentieth Century-Fox film is all right.

It's a decent picture, though the auteur touches (the visual stiffness, the tendency to drag scenes out long after the dramatic point has been made) are largely negative.

It's smashingly photographed in the classic styles of the genre.

A no name cast conjures up some atmospheric thrills under the direction of Mankiewicz.

A quintessential amnesiac story.

Audience Reviews for Somewhere in the Night


Good wronged man noir. Hodiak is solid if somewhat stolid but he possesses the proper gravitas for the lead. The plot is explained a little too much rather than acted out visually but still a good film with an excellent supporting cast.
