Critic Reviews for Dark Streets
An unwieldy combination of film noir and film musical, Dark Streets doesn't manage to be effective on either level.
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.
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.
Rachel Samuels' thin, affected jazz-age noir Dark Streets is worse than most, grafting an indifferent series of twists and double-crosses onto a blues-nightclub backdrop that overwhelms the foreground.
Audience Reviews for Dark Streets
Great performances, great jazz history, great dirty politicians. I really enjoyed this one, but what a tragic ending for our naive club owner.
(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] I liked the wild ambition of this odd musical. Surely not for everybody, but I got a kick out of Elias Koteas' supporting role.
Way much better than I thought. Particularly good at photography (together with the beautiful sets & props), the musical numbers, with the successful building-up of the moody 1930s environment. The story & narrative are still the weakest links however. A wonderfully-acted Bijou Phillips once again.
