The Naked City is frequently heralded as a great film noir, but I frankly just don’t see it. It lacks much of moral quagmire that noir traffics in.

The Naked City

“The Naked City is frequently heralded as a great film noir, but I frankly just don’t see it. It lacks much of moral quagmire that noir traffics in. Here the good guys (the cops) are straight-laced and completely heroic, while are bad guys have no ambiguity or nuance present in them. Film noir was a black and white populated by tortured souls who were effectively various shades of grey. Naked City cleans everything up, playing more like pro-police propaganda than anything else.

Or maybe it plays out more like a police procedural show? The road map is clearly there: begin with the murder, follow through with various suspects, and conclude with the apprehension of the murder. It’s formulaic, even for the time, with the only truly daring choice was to film in a primitive variatio” read more

" Plot: The New York City Police investigate a woman's murder, but this is far from a routine detective story. It was filmed on the streets of New York City with the actors playing their roles along with the people and the locations of the Big Apple. Genre: Crime | Drama | Film-Noir Director: Jules Dassin Stars: Barry Fitzgerald, Don Taylor, Howard Duff"

" The films certainly falls on the lighter side of Film Noir. There is some early use of multiple perspectives. The story is told from the perspective of the investigation team as a whole and intersects of day-to-day life in the city. "
