The portrait of small-town loneliness and desperation is well and sharply drawn.
For all of its acting wealth, Fallen Angel falls short of being a top flight whodunit.
A sharp, small town melodrama.
Fallen Angel plays with the well-worn trope of the virgin / whore dichotomy, inverting to a certain degree the audience's expectations of female agency.
The overall mood, lighting, and pace of the film, nevertheless, are top, hardboiled film noir.
Heck, you almost expect Mildred Pierce to show up at Pop's Diner to sell him some pies!
Its subtle analysis of shadowy tropes proves both a continuation and a deepening of Preminger's use of moral ambiguity as a tool of human insight.
It lacks that desperation, doom, and paranoia. It's limp; it's just going through the motions.
Worth watching for its fascinating view of the seamy underbelly of parochial life in post-war America.
A follow-up film noir to the highly successful Laura.
I loved this movie! Andrews and Faye and Darnell were so fantastic in the movie, and the story is exciting, suspenseful, and romantic. I highly recommend it.
Good performances but the storyline only works if you buy into the assumption that all men are powerless under the spell of Linda Darnell. Discount that and 90% of the plot becomes illogical and disjointed.
Doesn't quite stick to the noir playbook but a lot of this film is great - Dana Andrews is rock solid and Otto Preminger pulls some HOT camera moves. Linda Darnell is a classic bombshell who has men diving off cliffs at a single glance. Once you get by the slight noir unorthodoxy - and a couple plot shaggies - you have a very rewarding film.
