Noir? Maybe, ask CJ. But noir in the woods. Which is not noir, in my book. You know, to me it is melodrama, with lots of "psychological" undercurrents which would make a field day for those who like psychology applied to movie. Unfortunately I like to apply, before psychology, credibility and logic and, as it often happens in the noir (or pseudo-noir) genre, here there is little. On the contrary, there is the usual heap of commonplaces, where you get interested at the start and then you start being afraid that it might be uncomplicated to see through the mystery as it isn't (and wasn't) for the characters in the previous 15 years. What I save of this mess (i read at IMDB that Scorsese likes the movie: had I known it before, I wouldn't have bought the dvd) is Julie London at 21. 5\10

I have a crappy PD copy on disc. I pretty much concur with titoli's comments; the film isn't all that interesting.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.
