Critic Reviews for Cry of the City
Film noir doesn't get much murkier than Robert Siodmak's 1948 New York-set immigrant story.
It's an exciting motion picture, credibly put together to wring out every bit of strong action and tension inherent in such a plot.
Riveting example of Siodmak's skill not only in transforming indifferent material, but in giving the feel of studio noir to location shooting.
Cry of the City may be strident at times but its message, story and players are thoroughly effective.
The urban atmosphere of city traffic and the scuffed and worn authenticity of real storefronts and sidewalks gives the film a charge of realism but Siodmak forgoes docurealism for his beloved expressionist style.
