    The Miles Davis score is brilliant, the story is great, the acting is terrific. 7 years 8 months ago

    Great noir! Could have done without the narratively convenient spoiler, as well as the cumbersome internal monologues, but the strong acting, clever and unconventional plot progression, and inventive camerawork make this quite the enthralling watch. 5 years 5 months ago
