What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Forbidden

    ***1/2. British noir, yes Sir! And worth your time and money too. Last movie directed by George King and Douglass (note the double S) Montgomery's last film. Most of the action takes place in a funfair. Free of the Hays code's censorship, film noir becomes really noir at last and can reveal the hero's dark side. Highly recommended.
