A disappointing movie

Back in the 70's and 80's, Brian de Palma was a very good director but, unfortunately, it has been a while since he has done anything really impressive. However, when I had heard about this project, I had some high hopes. Indeed, the story, the time period seemed to be taylor-made for De Palma and maybe he would eventually make an impressive come-back. However, the reception was rather poor and, e... read more

too complicated for me

although the setting (time, costumes, actors) was promising, I got lost somewhere in the middle.
The plot is somehow confusing, all the time people show their dark side and tell some flashback story of the past.
That way, everybody is connected to everyone, and in the end, I just didn't care anymore.

promising but... boring and disappointin

Based on James Ellroy’s book of the same name.
1940s. Los Angeles. Two cops, Bleichert aka Mr Ice (Hartnett) and Blanchard aka Mr Fire (Eckhart) investigate the brutal murder of a would-be actress, Elizabeth Short (Mia Kirschner).

Unfortunately this film just didn’t do anything right – except the the setting and costumes which were rather fine.

Description: The Black Dahlia drips with film noir atmospherics as it unspools a lurid and complicated story taken from James Ellroy's true-crime-inspired novel of the same name. Two boxers-turned-cops--Lee "Mr. Fire" Blanchard (Aaron Eckhart, Thank You For Smoking) and Bucky "Mr. Ice" Bleichert (Josh Hartnett, Black Hawk Down) ... (more)

“I'm sorry, but this film is really impressive. Not only do I like the cinematography, but the story left me curious to know more. It's one of those films that require multiple viewings, so I'm not exactly 100% on the 8/10. The scenes actually connect well with one another, but that is left with the audience. Director Brian DePalma has a very interesting artistic style, in my opinion. It leaves me to discover more about his work in the future.” read more
