NOT NECESSARILY NOIR REDUX:
One of the absolute highlights of this season's NOT NECESSARILY NOIR festival was Shane Black's wickedly funny 2005 private-eye mash-up; a wild crowd-pleaser that sent our Saturday night crowd onto 16th Street dazed and buzzed!
A sadly unheralded film that is now ripe for a reappraisal. An out-of-work crook stumbles into a bizarre plot after he impersonates an actor and lands a role in a film. Things get much dicier when murder steps in! A scintillating blend of film noir and dark humor make this completely unexpected film a pure delight. Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Val Kilmler, Michelle Monaghan, and Corbin Bernsen. Written and directed by Shane Black. In COLOR. 35mm. 103 mins. 2005. USA.
