  • Dan Eberle pushes film noir to its subjective extreme with this well-acted, unpretentious story of a fatalistic ex-cop.

  • A mildly engaging lowlife odyssey that struggles not to choke on its own style.

  • While Eberle's execution falls short, the scale of his ambition can't help but stir admiration: In an era where indies about people sitting around talking regularly receive accolades, making a microbudget film noir takes some guts.

  • Its familiar elements are rendered in noteworthy fashion, and the film stands as a strong example of the noir and mystery genres it plays in...

  • Shot in take-you-downtown-and-sweat-it-outta-you black and white, this noir took guts, and sometimes guts is all it takes.

Audience Reviews for Cut to Black

  • May 14, 2014
    Seriously well-made, micro-budget independent crime thriller about an ex cop up to his ears in corruption when a politician hires him to track down his daughter's stalker. A few minor flaws, -the film needs just a tad bit of polish here and there, but doesn't come across as low budget, even though you can just tell it's probably the director's first feature-length effort. Cut To Black is well shot, almost arty, and the acting is competent.. Most importantly, the story is intriguing, fresh, and credible, It's well-developed, with a couple of twists. There are some memorable scenes, and an effective and intriguing, original musical score. I'm quite pleased to have found Cut To Black. It kept me engrossed, made me think a little, and will stay in my memory.
