Movie Info

Based on Colin Harrison's acclaimed novel Manhattan Nocturne (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), MANHATTAN NIGHT tells the story of Porter Wren (Adrien Brody), a New York City tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy and anything that passes for the truth. At home he is a model family man, devoted to his loving wife (Jennifer Beals). But when a seductive stranger (Yvonne Strahovski) asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her filmmaker husband Simon (Campbell Scott), he can't resist. In this modern version of a classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail - one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life.

  • It's probably not something worth rushing out to cinemas for, but it's great afternoon viewing with a pack of smokes and a glass of scotch at the ready.

  • The payoff surprises by extending sympathy in unexpected directions. Besides, the stars really do look the part, with Brody making a convincingly dogged sleuth, while Strahovski is every inch the dangerously seductive siren.

  • A mystery film that involves videotapes, blackmail, seduction games and assassinations. In his ambition to create a noir film, director Brian DeCubellis fails in his attempt and only offers an incoherent story. [Full review in Spanish]

  • DeCubellis never manages to captivate the viewer and doesn't have the necessary dramatic tensions. [Full review in Spanish]

    March 13, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • Manhattan Night isn't a great example of the genre, but it's the best you'll get this side of 1959.

Audience Reviews for Manhattan Night (Manhattan Nocturne)

  • Sep 29, 2016
    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.
