Mr. Allen

Reviews

A Private Investigator (or journalist) is invited to solve a murder... but who's?

A perfect plot idea for their genre, "The invitation movie", with a delivery that fell a little short in the script-writing department but excelled everywhere else.

The only let down was the script writing - a.k.a the hardest part of 48. I was unsure what the tone of the film was supposed to be with the two leads firing one liners at each other throughout instead of actual plot propelling dialogue leaving key plot points like how the protagonist figures "it" out lacking substance or backbone. Although this is par for the course in 48, I felt it detracted from what could have otherwise been a very haunting, atmospheric film. This was only minor though and the film-making on display in this film is outstanding.

The cinematography, editing & mixing was awesome and the attention to detail with these elements made for a very atmospheric and enjoyable viewing.

Well done Team Spielberg
