Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Looks great and sound great, but it doesn't have enough heart and soul and, ultimately, seems too artsy-fartsy while leaving feeling cold.

- Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru, Thursday, June 24, 2010


- Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out, Thursday, November 17, 2011

Rotten: This misbegotten musical noir homage could have been written for Garrison Keillor's Guy Noir sketch, and it mistakes shooting out of focus for stylishness.

Audience Reviews

2 stars

The film is so obsessed with style and atmosphere, it forgot to add a good story and characters with depth. It did try for believable period detail, but failed for the most part. Great music at least.

I thought that this was fantastic. The singing the girls and the black guy with the mohawk was just great

Great performances, great jazz history, great dirty politicians. I really enjoyed this one, but what a tragic ending for our naive club owner.
