Wasted potential. If the script were better, this would be a classic. As it stands, it's a curiosity. Pesci does the best he can with what he's got, and it's well shot. That's about all I can say about it.
A very different role for Pesci. It showed that he was more than a wise guy or a crash test burglar. For some reason, I thought this was going to be more comical, like a spoof or satire of 1940's cinema. In fact the film is played very straight and it's not a bad film. You just have to be in the mood for it.
Searching for something to watch in the summer, when nothing is on, but The Public Eye turned out to be an interesting movie. Particularly liked the attention to detail in the architecture, autos, clothing, etc.
Excellent take on the film noir genre from the point of view of a scandal mag paparazzi photographer. Pesci superbly plays the grubby photographer in way over his head and dodging bullets left and right and always coming out just ahead. Deserved a far higher profile and appreciation than it ever received theatrically.
If you are a mobster movie fan, no introduction is required for Joe Pesci - the cult legend! This time around, he plays the shutterbug who will go to any end for a sensational photo! Amazing movie for all photographers and "slice of life" lovers.
Film med svakheter men med en vis sjarm. Laget pÃ¥ en klassisk film noir lest. Den har skurker, sexy damer og menn som gjÃ¸r ting de ikke burde fordi sexy damer sier de skal gjÃ¸re det. Historien virker noe oppstykket pÃ¥ enkelte karakterutviklinger men hellers sÃ¥ er den helt grei. Det som derimot lÃ¸fter filmen er fotografiene som blir brukt. Filmen basere seg pÃ¥ en ekte fotograf som tok masse bilder i New York pÃ¥ fra 20-50 tallet. Bildene er utrolig fine og jeg gikk rett pÃ¥ nettet og kjÃ¸pte ei bok av han etter filmen.
