Underratted Neo Noir
I think that this movie is a must see, if you are into film noir then put this on your list.

It's not so much the acting or the scenes that are good but the writing that makes this movie. I recently became aware of this writer Arthur Lyons by chance and found a old copy of this made for TV film and Wow! This writer was so underrated and forgotten that I will for sure read all of his only 12 books with the character Jacob Asch.

It's really sad that Mr. Lyons is no longer with us to write any more of these great stories but we got 11 more movies to make from these 12 great hard boiled books. So come on producers and directors quit putting out pop crap and take a look at this writer. Thank you Mr. Lyons. Your fan Steve H
