Critic Reviews for In a Lonely Place
Few movies suggest such a forthright flaying of their director's soul.
The grayest, most morally ambiguous of film noirs -- and arguably the most self-reflexive.
It's a breathtaking work, and a key citation in the case for confession as suitable material for art.
Director Nicholas Ray maintains nice suspense. Bogart is excellent. Gloria Grahame, as his romance, also rates kudos.
Audience Reviews for In a Lonely Place
good but with an extremely dark outlook
Bogart is frightening in Nicholas Ray's masterpiece.
An indictment of Hollywood, a subversion of the romanticism associated with Hollywood, and the story of the plight of an aging writer who desires to remain true to himself and control his demons. Nicholas Ray's film is truly unlike most noirs I have ever seen. It features one of Bogart's best performances, and one of the best endings I could have imagined for a film such as this.
