News & Interviews for Manhattan Night (Manhattan Nocturne)
Critic Reviews for Manhattan Night (Manhattan Nocturne)
Despite being rife with crime, sex and darkness, Manhattan Night feels increasingly like a cheap ripoff of the genre it so very much wants to fit into.
Director DeCubellis is frightfully beholden to the tropes of the genre, and the premise (involving blackmail, strange dares and an inexplicable horse story) is just not credible.
The thrilling twists and turns of Harrison's plot are here, but DeCubellis's hazy pacing drains the film of the book's zest. Though great material mishandled is frustrating to view, there are nonetheless some bright spots.
It's pretty frustrating to watch a close-but-no-cigar movie like this.
It's not a great movie but a welcome one, if only for how it attempts to revive a whole genre.
Audience Reviews for Manhattan Night (Manhattan Nocturne)
Adrian Brody is not a private detective exactly, but rather he's a investigative reporter. And he's not single and hardboiled, he's a family man if a little cynical. Notwithstanding the story is basically the same: a beautiful woman in danger with a mystery to solve and "can you help me" eyes, and legs, a mysterious but thoroughly dangerous rich guy with something to hide (Is there any other kind?), and finally, most of all, the dead body of a complete asshole everybody but everybody wants dead. Voila, it's the revenge of film noir, or the son, or film noir for millenials. Whatever the case, despite it's steadfast dedication to the form, this baby lacks the heart-dragged-through-the-gutter. Nice try though.
