The black Dahlia

My enjoyment of film noir led me to The Black Dahlia and I was glad I did..although somewhat converluted and overtly complex.its well directed by Brian DePalma. ...evocking classic 40s well as some of his other masterpecies,such as "Scarface" and esp the "washed out " feel of "Body Double " and "The Untouchables " It also contains some great acting by Josh Hartnett..and esp ,my current fav Aaron Eckart, who my friend directed off Broadway many years ago..and who thrilled me in "Nurse Betty " and "The Company of men ".
