  1. Log Lady's rating of the film The Crimson Kimono

    An explosive start with a dead stripper, and a sensible exploration of the Japanese American experience, but I wish more time had been used in the police procedural and less on romance and personal troubles. Still, I'd say this is an essential L.A. noir with all the outdoor scenes shot in the actual locations, like the rare glimpse of 1950s Little Tokyo.

  4. Charles Coleman's rating of the film The Crimson Kimono

    4 1/2. Has to be one of the more interesting movies made in Hollywood in the 1950's, interracial romance, one of the lead detectives on the case is an Asian guy and he's not in anyway like the Charlie Chan stereotype, and of course strippers and martial arts. Sam Fuller does it again. WOW. Terrific film and especially a must-see for Angelinos.

  5. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film The Crimson Kimono

    Unusual police thriller - with some delicious lighting and startling editing choices - that abandons the crime plot for almost half its length to concentrate on interpersonal relationships. The epiphany is hokey, of course, but that only serves as a reminder that cinema itself is an elaborate contrivance to portray reality.

  6. Zachary Curl's rating of the film The Crimson Kimono

    James Shigeta is great in this. i saw this one day on TCM while i was home sick from work and really enjoyed it. i had no idea it was Samuel Fuller, but i'm not surprised either.

  7. Jorge Negrete's rating of the film The Crimson Kimono

    Film noir barato y con pocos momentos que valen la pena. La pelicula parece editada con las nalgas excepto en las secuencias de acción. El score es fantástico (jazz). Las actuaciones son lamentables, incluso para los estandares del serie B.

  8. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Crimson Kimono

    Anti-racist Film Noir with Glenn Corbett, Ray Liotta’s look-alike, Little Tokyo and five women gravitating around the two detectives. Highly recommended.

  9. Mark Ayala's rating of the film The Crimson Kimono

    Dear Auteurs, I submit nice photos for this and you end up uploading photos from a different film that looks like it has bad Asian sterotypes. What gives?
