Sadly, given the cast, about the only aspect of the film that does fully work. Gina Gershon was born for noir.

I'm only sorry, as I've been mentioning to people I've discussed the TCM marathons with, that they couldn't add THE LONG GOODBYE to the set...though, sadly, by me, it's academic, as I'm TCM-deprived. TM

the adaptation of Jim Thompson's THIS WORLD, THEN THE FIREWORKS is in color and looks like a LIFE magazine from the era. that works too.
