Movie Info

HOGTOWN is set in 1919 Chicago against the backdrop of the race riots of that year. The story follows an investigation into the disappearance of a millionaire theatre owner during a snowstorm. HOGTOWN is a murder mystery that celebrates the most American of American cities while exploring the intimate lives of many of its people. This period piece is much more a period-less piece, shot in black and white in the often undisguised contemporary city.


Critic Reviews for Hogtown

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (4)

The movie unfolds in loosely connected vignettes, with a mix of narrators and narrative tenses; it can feel as if you're leafing through a collection of poems.

It captures nooks and crannies and the underside of the elevated train tracks with a true artist's eye.
