All visual flash and no script, with comatose performances to boot.
Mix American gangsters, molls and majorettes with Polish avant-garde jazz musicians against a Newcastle background - and what you've got is a curious homage to B movie Hollywood and the rain-washed neon of the pulps.
Mr. Figgis, who is a musician as well as a film maker, brings the place, the plot and the film's haunting characters vibrantly to life. What's more, he makes them irresistibly interesting.
"Stormy Monday" is about the way light falls on wet pavement stones, and about how a neon sign glows in a darkened doorway.
Jones works his machismo persona into a lather, but it's unclear what he's doing in this movie, so he's more a source of campy fun than menace.
It is all style and promise, a come-on that keeps on coming on but never satisfies. The Big Tease.
A strong exercise in mood early in Mike Figgis's career.
An atmospheric mix of urban grit and northern noir assembled with the artful imagery and moody timbre we've come to expect from Mike Figgis.
