Rating: 8/10 -- A poetic, rambunctious film that shows no matter how much we see, we never see, and no matter how much things change, the more they stay the same. Full Review
Monsters and Critics
Dec 16, 2008
Rating: 1/5 -- A film noir musical fantasy that falls flat due to a weak screenplay.

Rating: 2/4 -- I love musicals, but I'd be hard-pressed to recommend this curiosity. Full Review
New York Post
Dec 12, 2008
Rating: C- -- Rachel Samuels' thin, affected jazz-age noir Dark Streets is worse than most, grafting an indifferent series of twists and double-crosses onto a blues-nightclub backdrop that overwhelms the foreground.

Rating: D+ -- There's nothing worse than a soft-boiled noir. Dashiell Hammett this is not. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- The cast of lightweights come off as kids playing dress-up in their parents' old clothes. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Dark Streets has atmosphere coming out its ears, but not much going on between them.

Product Description:

Adapted from Glenn M. Stewart's stage musical, THE CITY CLUB, Rachel Samuels's DARK STREETS is a smoky modern noir set in an unnamed Depression-era American city. Gabriel Mann stars as Chaz Davenport, the son of a wealthy and important public figure who surprises everyone by committing suicide. A distraught Chaz, who owns a hot new nightclub featuring a talented roster of singers and dancers, soon discovers there was another side to his father's life--and death--that he knew nothing about. At the same time, a very strange police lieutenant (Elias Koteas) shows up, offering Chaz protection from the loan sharks he owes big money to in exchange for giving a shot to sexy chanteuse Madelaine (Izabella Miko). Chaz's growing interest in the femme fatale creates a wedge between him and another of his singers, Crystal (Bijou Phillips), with whom he has an on-again, off-again relationship. While the city keeps experiencing blackouts, scandal and murder threaten to destroy everything around Chaz. In DARK STREETS, Samuels (THE SUICIDE CLUB) creates an atmosphere of intrigue and mystery with the help of Frank Bollinger's production design, Sharone Meir's cinematography, and Maria Schicker's costumes, evoking such films as CHINATOWN, THE COTTON CLUB, and THE BLACK DAHLIA. For the soundtrack, James Compton, Tim Brown, and Tony De Meur wrote original blues and R&B numbers that have been performed by a remarkable group of legends, including Etta James, Natalie Cole, Aaron Neville, Solomon Burke, and Chaka Khan, while B. B. King contributes guitar to George Acogny's instrumental score. The film is emceed by Prince Royale (Toledo Diamond), who is also the emcee of Chaz's nightclub.

Product Description:
