  • flip trotsky's rating of the film The Lady Confesses

    Predates at least two other noirs, Black Angel (Roy William Neill, 1946) and Destination Murder (Edward Cahn, 1950) that use the same plot device: a woman infiltrates a nightclub to get to the bottom of a murder case. This is no Black Angel, but it's a diverting enough throwback to those B-mysteries that were churned out in the '30s...until the rubbish ending, where the character motivations defy logical explanation.
