  • ZYNAB's rating of the film Girl on the Run

    a poverty row noir with the aesthetics of a late 60s roughie and the plot of your average post-code 30s crime programmer...crooked district attorneys and crusading reporters and all that. someone looking for a really bizarro film might find the seedy carnival atmosphere is spread a bit thin...but i loved seeing that kind of a morality tale married to a two-bit carnival setting!!
