This movie really got me into it! It cant be compared to those other two movies about the Black Dahlia legend,though I haven't seen both,but Im sure the other one doesn't reach the arty level anyway and especially Brian de Palma's version (which ,I think,sucks big time) is nothing compared to that piece of art! Ramzi Abed's version is very underground but still very well produced and set! I very much like the light,atmosphere and coloring of that movie. The actors as well as the director Ramzi Abed are doing excellent work, not to forget the stunning soundtrack! I love the twists in it also and "Black Dahlia" is so added to my personal favorite movie list! In one word: OUTSTANDING!!!! It's a MUST to watch it!
