    I didn't expect to like this 'tortured soul' story as much as I did. Sure the acting was a little bit over the top at times - yeah, you, Hoff! - and the writer surely was a Shakespeare fanboy, but I felt moved all the same. Two hours of shouting, drinking and mouthing off in a single living room and it never got boring. 6 years 1 month ago

    This is a B movie and once you start to think it that way it's actually pretty good. There's an excellent cast (although I don't care much for Jack Palance), there's great score, overacting and even the camera and operator's shadow on the wall at 47:01. 4 years 1 month ago

    Overwrought, overacted lukewarm denunciation of Hollywood depravity. Adapted from a play, and like most such films, has a very stagebound feel. Ultimately, it's not really film noir, nor is it an exposé, nor is it all that good. 5 years 4 months ago
