"24.6. 2023 A serial killer stalks and murders unsuspecting women and an influential newspaper publisher pits three top reporters against each other to catch and expose the killer. The killer is mostly just a pathetic character who suffers from a disturbed relationship with his mother. He is very much like the child killer in Lang's masterpiece "M". Lang's remarks are sharp and impressive: the killer is easy to hate but honorable characters aren't actually that innocent either because they cynic"

Slantโ€™s 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time (100 movies items)

"From his Weimar films all the way through his Hollywood productions, Fritz Lang evinced a deep suspicion of any and all institutions of authority. Alongside Ace in the Hole and Sweet Smell of Success, While the City Sleeps is the most cynical and piercing of noirs to place journalism in its crosshairs.
