The Naked City

Posted by martinteller on April 26, 2008

A decent police procedural from decent filmmaker Jules Dassin.  I’ve always been somewhat underwhelmed by Dassin’s work, and never more so than here.  To be fair, he’s got a good eye… the photography sports some good ideas, and I like the use of real locations.  But the movie is hampered by weak acting, uninteresting characters, and especially the annoying narration.  Rating: 6
